View Full Version : Adding a counter/statistics to a webpage

12-10-2004, 11:23
I'm developing a pretty simple webpage for my brother's business. It is really just HTML pages with a little javascript.

Are there any simple hit counters out there that I could use to track traffic. I'd love to see additional statistics if possible, but I don't really want to use or require cookies on the pages. Also, I'm not sure if I want to display the counter to the users or just use it for internal tracking. I'm not sure if that makes a difference in what you'll recommend.

Any ideas? TIA.

If you do a Google search for free website counters you should be able to find one that will give you the HTML code to get one set up. Here is one I found Counters (

Thanks for the replies. He has his website space hosted by

I basically just developed the HTML code in 1st Page 2000 and update it via FTP.

Rluebb, thanks for the link. That's what I was looking for, but I'm not all that interested in the sponsor links that the counter includes, although after a bit of searching on my own, it definitely seems that that's the rule much more than it's the exception.

You can set your page up in basic .html or if you are an experienced programmer .php

They have a plethora of tools that will tell you who, what, when and where is visiting your website.

And it is included with you just having them host your webite.
