Adding a hit counter to your site is an easy, but not necessarily the most effective, way to track the visitors to your site. A service like Google Analytics gives you far more detailed and useful information about the visitors to your site, and it has the added advantage of only being accessible to you in your private Analytics account. To learn how to add Google Analytics, follow this link:

If you still decide that you want a hit counter for your site, here is an easy way to add one:

Widget Box, one of the widget galleries we have integrated with in SynthaSite, offers a several hit counter widgets. Here is the link:

To add this widget to your site:
1) Drag and drop a Widget box icon onto your page (you will find it in the "widgets" folder)
2) Click on the link in the dialog that will take you to Widget Box and search for "hit counter"
3) Copy the code
4) Paste it into the SynthaSite dialog box

That's it! You will have a hit counter for your site!

Go to pick the hit counter you want, submit your url (website address), copy the HTML code that it gives you.
Then go to Synthasite and open up your website. Drag a HTML widget on to your index page, click EDIT, delete the HTML code in the widget and paste in the new hit counter code. Save the page, re-publish your site and "Bobs your Uncle" a free hit counter on your web page.

I'm new to building a web site and trying to learn all I can. What is SynthaSite? And when someone is directed to go to SynthaSite, is that a .com site? And how would you see your own url there? Thanks

Yola was originally Synthasite until it changed its name, Yola is a .com site.
Hope I've helped!

Hello T

Callum is correct. We have rebranded ourselves from Synthasite to Yola. Sorry for the confusion!
