Statcounter removed backlink

I do not know exactly how long it happened, but I can guess it happened within the last 2 months – Statcounter had added an option to remove the backlink.

They still ask you to give a link back, but it is not a MUST like before.

& please let me quote:

“If you wish you may disable the link back to StatCounter in your code – however we would really appreciate it if you left it in!”

 This step is to my opinion another step in their battle against the new threat by Google Analytics to still their clients.

Will next step be removing the last visitors limit – if only their interface would be more friendly to foreign languages they would have given Google a much better fight.

    <a href="; rel="nofollow">GoStats</a> offers greater stats history than statcounter. If you are considering an extra option.

    To be honest I’ve never tested GoStats, but that’s what this blog is for – to test seo stuff and report them.

    I’ve enjoyed the statcounter service so far and even the purchase of Urchin by google had not caused me to move my statistics management to Google Analytics.
