Hi,

I recently upgraded the StatCounter plugin that I use with my WordPress blog and now see that my visitor numbers according to StatCounter have increased substantially. However, I also use other counters to monitor my site and they have stayed the same. What's going on? Has StatCounter done anything to change the way visits are recorded, for example?

Grateful for any insight. Thanks.

Well, Statcounter has recently moved from the old "SC3" version to SC4 and I suppose that includes also the plugins. That may make a difference in improved way how visits are recorded. If you had the previous plugin for some time, it may be the reason.

Thanks! But that doesn't explain why there's about a doubling in visitor numbers. Are they being counted differently than before?
Ok, have you checked the page source online, to see that you don't have the counter code added twice on any page? That has happen to many who use plugin's to add the code.
