The counter on my website isn't showing. My guess is that the host of the counter made some changes or deleted this counter. Where can I find a reliable counter? One that won't disappear after a while! I kind of like the idea of a geographical counter (a list of countries and how many visitors from each country). Any ideas?

Is it possible to put ONE counter on your website to record ALL traffic to ALL pages or only the page the counter is on?

Hi Donald,

I don't know of a counter where you only need to add tracking code to one page that will record all traffic on all pages. I think you would need to add tracking code to each page that you would like tracked. We are aware that there is a need for a way to add the code once so that it is applied to all pages on your site - this is something we are working on.

You may be interested in Clustrmaps: http://www.clustrmaps.com/. They show a nice map of where your traffic is coming from.

Alternatively, there's always Google Analytics for free, detailed information on the traffic on your site. Here's the link: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

ok... now... I don't mind entering a tracking code on all pages. What I was getting at is that I don't want one counter to only read one page's hits or to have to have several counters reading a different number. I use getclicky for the most part which is better than google analytics, but I'm actually looking for a counter my visitors will see, not specifically an analytics. I use to have one on my site, but over the last day it's been taken down (probably by the host of the counter)

Custrmaps is somewhat what I had in mind but I tried something similar in the past and for an entire week it kept saying, "we are updating this map" and NEVER showed any statistics about my visits.

I've been using it for sometime now, its reliable. Also try Google Analytics...I don't think that was spelled right. Google breaks it down with ease of whats happening on each page if you put code on each page.

yea, getclicky is real time, you can know when someone's currently on your site, you know AS YOU GET VISITS, it's easier to navigate through getclicky than google analytics, it takes google a whole day to report back to you AND GOOGLE ANALYTICS IS INACCURATE. IT SAYS I GET 300 VISITORS A DAY. LOL, getclicky says I get 5 to 25 visitors a day with an average of about 3 clicks per visitor (this is more accurate as I know I'm not getting 300 visitors a day. Even with all page impressions I don't get 300.

but like I said, I'm not worried about analytics, I'm confortable with the one I have (getclicky). What I wanted was a traffic COUNTER that's visible to my visitors and ALL it says, is a number. Like the one I have on there now!

Hi Donald - here's a list of hit counters on Google: http://www.google.com/search?q=hit+co.... I'm not too familiar with which one's are good ones, but perhaps you just have to try them out until you've found one you like!
