Hi withasterisk

Here is ewaebcounter a free real time visitor counter that you can place on your website to see the page by page views by your visitors. The return time on Google Analytics is 24 hours and that means that you only get to see the traffic from the day before. With eweb you can see them the minute they hit your site. Once you have created your account and gotten your code simply insert it into a HTML widget on each of your pages, Update your site and then return to ewebcounter and sign into your account to watch your visitors actions. It may seem challenging to do but trust me in that it becomes second nature after the first day.

As to your question of a register/log-in so that your visitors can see their personal info this feature is not yet available for individual viewers of your website. It is however available if you wish to protect your entire site or pages of your site with one password.

Synthasite allows you to create a private website, or make part of your site private by password protecting certain pages on your site.
What this feature allows you to do:
1. Assign a single log in ID (username) and password to your site.
2. Choose whether you want to lock (password protect) all the pages on your site.
3. You can then share the log in ID and password with people you want to give access to the protected pages.
4. When they access those pages they will be asked to type in the log in ID and password before being given access.

What this feature does not do:
1. Allow people to register for a username and password on your site. This is a registration feature which Synthasite hopes to release in future.

How to use the Password Protection feature:
1. Click on the Site Manager tab
2. Click on "Site Password Protection" underneath the list of pages of your site
3. Add a login and password and tick the pages you would like to protect
4. You can easily protect all your pages by clicking on "Lock All" or take off the password protection by clicking on "Unlock All"
5. When you create a new page, you will see a check box in the new site dialog that gives you an option to protect (lock) the new page.
6. Preview your protected page to see what the log in form will look like and to test your log in and password
7. To make the change effective on your live site, click on the yellow 'Update my Site' button

PS Don't forget your password protect sign in info...

Keep in mind that if you happen to come upon some widget online which says that it can give you individual logins for your visitors please keep in mind that most that do are easily hacked by looking at your page source so this offers you little to no actual protection.

Happy site building
Ed

you are more than welcome my friend... Do include Google analytics to your website as they are very handy as well as beneficial to your site and helps google keep track of your site traffic. I have and use several site analytic programs on my site and each one is useful to use in cross referencing one another...

Glad you are happy
Ed
Or you can use www.statcounter.com,and you can add HTML code on everypage you want.I tried with google and didn't work.
Good luck!
