Hello Fayyaz

There are a few ways of being able to track how much traffic you're getting.
You could use a service like Google Analytics which will give you 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 account. To learn how to add Google Analytics, follow this link Adding Analytics.

Another option is to add a hit counter to your site. Here is an easy way to add one:

Add a hit counter by using the Widgetbox Gallery:
1. Drag and drop a Widgetbox Gallery widget onto your page.
2. A dialogue box will open, search for 'hit counter'.
3. Choose the counter that you would like to use on your site and customise the settings.
4. Click on the green 'Get Widget' button and it will be saved and added to your page.
5. Save and preview your page to view the widget.

Widget Box, one of the widget galleries we have integrated with in Yola, also offers several hit counter widgets. Here is the link: hit counter. 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 Yola dialogue box.

If Widgetbox does not give you a hit counter you are happy with, you could google for "free hit counter" and use a service like:

You can embed one of these hit counters in your page by:
1. Copying the HTML code the hit counter service provides.
2. Dragging and dropping an HTML widget onto your page and pasting the code into the HTML editor.
