Irish StatCounter man -Aodhan Cullen- in the Top EU 2007 Young Entrepreneurs

BusinessWeek has an article on Europe's Young Entrepreneurs 2007 and Aodhan Cullen (24) is one of nominations for those entrepreneurs under 25.

He runs StatCounter from Dublin, Ireland = A free yet reliable invisible web tracker, highly configurable hit counter and real-time detailed web stats.

Aodhan Cullen calls himself a born entrepreneur.
He has been running businesses since the age of 12, when he set up his own résumé-typing business. As a young teen, he dabbled in Web site design, and it was this experience that gave him the idea to launch StatCounter, the
company he founded in 1999 when he was 16. When Cullen started designing Web pages, his clients repeatedly asked him whether anyone was visiting their Web sites.

So, Cullen formed StatCounter and came up with a way to measure the number of hits on Web sites, the geographical location of visitors to sites, the various pages a visitor views on a site, and the keywords they use to find a site.

StatCounter currently has more than 1.4 million members and tracks more than 9 billion page views per month across its network of more than 2 million Web sites. The company, which is profitable, claims to be signing up 1,500 new members per day.

Over 100+ congrats on his blog and over 500 that are voting for him.

Hi Lal!

Thanks so much for the mention!

As you can imagine, we were all delighted with Aodhan's nomination.

More exposure for StatCounter = more members = more for free!

We work to provide the best service we can and are improving it all the time - if you're looking for a counter some day, why not give us a try?!

1.5 million others can't all be wrong, huh? ;)

Can you get the Irish Times in Colorado? We got a nice write-up there a few weeks ago - if I can find an email address for you, I'll send it on!

Thanks again.

StatCounter Team
