Hi Brian

How much is the number increasing by? You may find it is just updating its information when it is loaded. So, even though you have not published your site, the hit counter is still loading when you are working in the IDE - so it might just be counting you!

You can get really nice and reliable stats using Google Analytics. What you need to do is register at:

Once you are registered with analytics, they will give you some script to place in your website. What you need to do is drag an html widget onto your page and paste this script into the widget. You need to do this on every page you want to have tracked.
