Web site hit counter

Postby JulieJH » Tue Jan 22, 2008 5:30 pm

Is there a page counter that can be put on a website individually or do I need to contact the Server Administrator for our department to have them install this for our website?

Thanks, Julie

If you're looking for statistics on the visitors to your site, I would first look at log analyzing software - which is probably something your server administrator would have to set up for you. An alternative is something like Google Analytics http://www.google.com/analytics/ which is a free service which can gather statistics on your site, by using a small javascript added to all of your pages.

For individual page counters from the early era of the web -- an image displaying the number of page hits, preferably in a '57 chevy odometer style --- there may be some services out there, but in the past you needed to have something on the server which would capture this for you. I think fewer people are using those as they don't provide an accurate number of visitors, just an accurate number of counter image downloads.

Hope that helps.
