Creating Projects in StatCounter

After you have registered on the site, you can then begin creating projects to use with your stat stat counter / tracker. For this we use the Project Settings Window. See image on the right which shows you the project setup fields.

We setup one project at a time. You add a second or more project from the projects tab. Find and select "add another project" and repeat the steps for each additional tracker-counter you require.

Each single statcounter you create is called a project. You may only want a single counter for a single website (like we do), but you can use more. The Website Title you choose here becomes the name of the project. If you wish to only track part of a site or a product, you can create a more suitable name.

For example, you might wish to keep statistics on two or more of your products or services separated.

(1) Product #1 (margarita, pepperoni etc.)

(2) Product #2 (tortellini, ravioli etc.)

Then create a project for each with a unique name eg.

(1) PizzaProducts

(2) PastaProducts

tracking codes

Each project generates a different tracking code to insert into your html pages. All you need to do is ensure you place the correct tracking html code on your correct website pages and StatCounter will do the rest.

If you only want one statcounter per website, you should name the project after your website name. This makes identifying any future additional projects a very simple affair.

Then when you login to the StatCounter site, you will be greeted with the list of projects (trackers-counters) you have installed. Simply click on the project name you wish to view the stats for.

The red arrows in the next image (right) show you the fields you should address to properly create a project in StatCounter.
