code for hit counter on home page


Recommended Posts

You can do a search fro free script libraries where you can get a hit counter.


But ask yourself if you need one?


All pay hosts and most free hosts offer some form of statistics on the back side of the web site. That is all you need.


Hit counters up front and visible look bad and unprofessional. Especially for newer sites they highlight the fact that few come to the site suggesting it is not worth the visit. Nobody really cares what number they are or how many come there. They include every hit you make checking your corrections etc, so are inflated. Back end statistics usually ignore you and show unique hits and not repeat hits to the same page just because someone is backing out or returning to the index page to go somewhere else. You want ubique hits to each page.


They are really not a good idea to use.
