Corruption has become an issue of major political and economic significance in recent years and the necessity to take measures against it has become evident.

Goodbye Geo Counter

I'm no longer using Geo Counter (geocompteur) widget


From today, I'm no longer using Geo Counter (geocompteur) widget from www.widgeo.net with their third site map on www.compteur.cc. I love the widget view, but main reason I terminated using their service is they put advertises running by hidden script. It's annoying much...specially for my advertise on my own blog.

So, I CAN'T HARDLY WAIT TO DUMP www.widgeo.net from my blog.

At the first time, I'm so impressed by their widget skin..so attractive. And I realized they have policies that they will puts some ads in my blog. But, never know how often their pop up ads every time I and my friends or visitor load my blog. Until I count that their ads pop up in 2-3 ads windows for every single blog loading. Sometime their ads also appear inline of any word and crash my inline ads from adbrite or kontera which truly give me cash . I'm sure some of you still remember how disappointed when come to my blog in the past. I'm so sorry for that.

As you can read from www.widgeo.net, they have policies :

And, not like other similar service, I can't see my traffic detail when I click that widget. So, it less useful for me. They only show traffic report on the widget in my blog. This traffic only for a single day and total visitor information. So, I can't get my yesterday traffic information by this service. This is the widget look in my blog a minutes before I dump it (March 18, 2009 GMT+7) :


Anyway still I want to thank you for your services until this day. Goodbye www.widgeo.net !! Now, as you see I had replace it with other counter service which I'll discuss in my next post : Online Traffic Counter and Statistic Service Provider
