First and foremost question – why I was using sitemeter?
Well, it was only because of its simplicity. Google analytics is also free and far superior then sitemeter but I never required that many details and charts. I just wanted to see the traffic stats for my site which is what old sitemeter provided me. Well not anymore…
Any of the reasons mentioned below might be true:
- Get rid of as many accounts as possible as they might be in losses.
- Bitten by web2.0 bug
- They might have taken the decision to upgrade under heavy drugs. Any guesses (Cannabis, alcohol …)
- They want to close down their site in near future.
- Somebody they hired for upgrade is from rival company
I am using both premium and free service at sitemeter and I have to now find alternative for both. I am going to check statcounter.com and addfreestats.com. Any more alternatives…
