Free Counters are Back!

As I mentioned in a previous article, the WunderCounter started out as a totally free site. It was just a hobby I worked on in my spare time while I was an undergrad. It worked out so well that I eventually had to throw the brakes on the whole free part of the equation and I stopped offering them. The free accounts were maybe a bit too popular for me to handle at the time. However, anyone who had a free account at the time was allowed to keep it (to this day many thousands of people have done so), but it just wasn't possible to get new free accounts.

As of a couple of weeks ago, I'm once again offering free accounts. A brief explanation of the Wunder Free account as well as the signup link can be found here. CPU and bandwidth are plentiful these days and I'd like to encourage you to get the word out to friends and colleagues about these counters.

16 Different Styles

The idea behind the Wunder Free accounts is that these accounts produce only graphical (viewable) counters. They don't track stats, but they offer 16 different graphical styles to choose from. These counters work on, Myspace, LiveJournal, eBay etc. They look great and they're a handy first step to getting involved with web analytics. These accounts can be upgraded to paying accounts at any point, but there's absolutely no pressure to do so. If all you really want is a free counter, you're at the right place. The counters are currently unbranded. That may change in future, but I'm not 100% sure on that. We'll see how the unbranded counters work out to start with.

Earning Money via Free Accounts

You can even earn money with these free accounts. Each graphical counter links back to with an affiliate link. If you opt in to the affiliate program, you can earn money for every paying customer you refer back to the WunderCounter.

So, you can actually earn money while taking advantage of the free counters. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me!
