TheCounter.com Javascript tests
How to explain 10-20% javascript disabled

dear WmW members,

For a while now I've been wondering how to explain the 10-20% of pageviews by javascript disabled UAs that thecounter.com consistently reports.

The script goes something like:
<script>
...
<IMG"+ " BORDER=0 width=1 height=1 SRC=\"http://c2.thecounter.com/id=1412"+r+"\"><\/A></SPAN>")}
</SCRIPT>
<NOSCRIPT><A HREF="http://www.TheCounter.com" TARGET="_top"><IMG SRC="http://c2.thecounter.com/id=1412" ALT="TC" BORDER=0></A>
</NOSCRIPT>

Some say its the spiders but most spiders wouldn't request the image in the <noscript>, would they?

Another reason for disabling javascript is of course security but could this really explain the 12% of pageviews by javascript disabled browsers in June?

Any ideas?

I think the average non-JS user percentage is somewhere around 15%. I have heard much higher, and much lower, but that seems to be a consistent average over different types of sites. 12% is probably accurate for your report.

Most spiders don't request images, unless indexing images in particular.
