Up until today (July 22, 2008), visits to my web-site were tracked with STATCOUNTER. And then my account came up for renewal payment, but Statcounter's payment vendor - WorldPay - would not accept my credit card info (had changed cards since last payment).
OUCH! So, bye-bye Statcounter-WorldPay!
I'm now actively seeking a new site counter service. Have browsed around, and it seems that I may have found one with SiteMeter. The pricing is nice - a minimum of $60 a year, far less than what I was coughing up for StatCounter - and it seems that SiteMeter will do a few more things for me that StatCounter could not.
So, before I make a commitment, I need to know if anyone here uses SiteMeter and what their experience with it has been like. Also - and very, very important - are payments for paid plans made directly to SiteMeter, or does SiteMeter refer you to a payment vendor (hopefully NOT WorldPay).
Also, if you think there's a service comparable to SiteMeter that I might also consider, you may mention such here. Let me know if payments for such services go through the service itself or through a payment vendor.
Thanx-A-Lot and Happy Browsing,
