Hey Mike

You can definitely add a web counter to your site. There's lot of free ones out there. Here are a few suggestions:

Once you've selected the web counter you want, copy the HTML code. Then, in your site builder, drag the HTML widget over and then paste your code in the HTML. Be sure to click on "update" to see your web counter in action on your published site.

Hi Mike,


I know theirs work.

If you want more sophisticated analytics which will show where people are going to and where they came from you can try "" or Google Analytics.

Hi Mike,

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: Adding Analytics -

Here's how to add Google Analytics:

1. Go to Google 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 Yola 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.

Please Note: Google Analytics sometimes gives a Javascript error on drop. This is a known issue, but will not interfere with Google's ability to verify your site. If you get this error, simply navigate to another page on your site and all should be fine).
