Statcounter is a web traffic analysis tool founded in 1999.[1] Access to basic services is free and advanced services can cost between US$5 and $119 a month.[2] The company is based in Dublin. The statistics from StatCounter are used to compute web usage share for example.[3] StatCounter is used on 1.1% of all websites.[4]

StatCounter statistics are directly derived from hits (as opposed to unique visitors) from 3 million sites, which use StatCounter, resulting in total hits of more than 15 billion per month.[5] No artificial weightings are used to correct for sampling bias, thus the numbers in the statistics can not be considered to be representative samples.

The company was founded by Aodhan Cullen at the age of 16. He remains the CEO of StatCounter. Cullen received the "Internet Hero" award at the 2008 Eircom Golden Spider Awards.[6][7] He was also named the 2007 BusinessWeek Young European Entrepreneur of the Year.[8][9]

In 2008, the company surpassed two million members globally.[citation needed]
