Hi Samuel,

Great question! We recommend adding Google Analytics to your site. This application will help you track your visitors' locations and behaviour on your site - letting you know which parts of your site are the most popular/effective. For detailed, step by step instructions, see our tutorial: http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/a...

Here's how to add Google Analytics:
1. Go to Google Analytics (http://www.google.com/analytics/) and sign up for a free account.
2. Type in the URL of your site.
3. Copy the verification code provided by Google.
4. Go to SynthaSite and drag and drop an HTML widget at the bottom of each page you want to track. You could place the code anywhere on your page, but always adding it in the same spot helps you keep track of where you have placed it.
5. Paste the code from Google into the dialogue box of the HTML widget on each page.
6. Republish your site.

If the code is installed correctly you will not see anything on your page, but Google will use this invisible tracking code to gather data on your site. Once you update your site, it be verified and you can log in to your Google Analytics account to find out all the information you want to know about the people who have visited your site. Please be aware that it takes 24 hours for Google Analytics to collect the first lot of data about your site.

I hope that helps - please let us know if you need any other info.

Your server stores information about which IP's have hit your site. Every server does it, and the process of getting the information from the server depends on the actual implementation. Check out your server documentation for details.

Keep in mind however, that this information is limited. So, you're not going to find out 'who' they are, just 'where' they are. The only exception to this is IP's that identify themselves, such as search engines and the like. But, like I said, finding out depends on your particular server.
