Recently, I read a thread in Statcounter forum in which a user asked whether its possible to match the stats of Statcounter account and stats of Hostgator (server stats).
Answer – First of all you must know how the tracking is done by Statcounter and by Server, both are different in their approach and will never match with one another.
Statcounter only tracks hits or visits to pages that has tracking code, assuming the visitor has enabled third party or Hot-linked images they cant be tracked in dashboard.
In Server side stats it tracks hits of each and every files (data’s, downloads, images, page loads, search bot etc.,) that has been accessed from the server. You may use any proxy server or any tool for anonymous browsing but hits will get logged in the server.
