Where can I find a good hit counter? (7 posts)

    I want a hit counter for my blog.

    More specifically, I want one that will show me "Unique hits", "Total hits", and "Individual page hits", not including the visits that I make to my site.

    Anyone using a good one that does that?

    Thanks

    I would recommend using Google Analytics. It will track unique visits, total visits, and show you statistical summaries by page, by search keyword, and even break things up by geographical region. You can either install the code yourself, or use one of the many plug-ins available that integrate well with Google.

    Then, to keep it from tracking visits you make, I recommend you hide your PC from Google. You can edit your Windows hosts file to make your browser invisible to Google Analytics ... then you won't have any extra traffic in your stats from your own visits.

    A good alternative method to this is to use the Stats plug-in from Automattic. It provides great statistics about your site and also won't track your own visits to the blog (without the need to edit your hosts file).

    I use both methods I outlined above, and they work incredibly well.
