Place a Counter on Your Web Pages

There are several ways to measure your site's traffic. One is a general Usage Statistics Report which you can get from time to time. The other, and somewhat more popular way to measure is to place/display a counter on selected pages.

This page provides you with actual HTML code you need to place on your HTML pages in order to have a counter. Normally, each page has its own counter, so you need to run this tool per page and insert the the code in those pages. If you run this tool once and place the code on multiple pages, every time any one of those multiple pages are accessed, the counter for all of them increase. Some people use this tool to display the total number of page displays for the entire site on every page.

Fill out the form below and you will be presented with the proper code to place inside of your html files to have counters similar to the one below.
