HTML for Web page counter?
May 10, 2005 2:01 PM   Subscribe

I want to include a counter on my website. I don't want to use a "free" counter that includes links or advertisement on my site. I'd rather just write the code in myself for a simple, small, black-and-white counter. Can anyone help me?

Can you run PHP and/or MySQL on your server? If so...check here. If not, check here.

Also, just so you're clear, a counter can't be done with just HTML. You're going to require some sort of server-side scripting to make it happen.

PHP counters can be found here, while scripts written in Perl can be found here. Either resource should offer you what you're looking for.

I'mn using Statcounter for two of my blogs. You can hide the counter and no ads. But when viewing your stats you will get popups. IMHO very good reports: visitor path, duration, search engine wars.

I'm using Statcounter as well and had no idea that you got popups. I guess Firefox takes care of them.

Thanks to everyone for these considerate responses. They are much much much appreciated. This Web design neophyte needs all the help he can get.
