Free Web Counter for My Website
One of the most common questions I get asked as a web designer is "will I get a web counter with my website?". Knowing how many sites your website gets is a vital piece of piece of information in determining whether your website is working for your business or not.
It's easy when you know how
For someone who with a modicum of technical ability in something like ASP or PHP this is easy to achieve. However, many business owners who create their own websites have no such ability and often scour the net for a free web counter.
Free web counters on the net
There are many on offer but usually there are a couple of downsides. Firstly, they can often involve giving an outbound link to the counter provider's website and secondly, it makes the information publicly available. This might be something with which some business owner's might be comfortable but not with all.
Your business needs more than just a web counter
The truth is, that as useful as a web counter is, it does not provide enough information for you to assess how well your website is doing. It does give you the broad picture but more detail would be extremely beneficial such as:
- Number of visitors by day
- Numbers of unique visitors (that way you cut out all the multiple visits made by some customers)
- Source of visitors
- Search engine key phrases used to find your website
- Progress of visitor numbers over time
