How to create a counter on your web page.
Before trying any of the below recommendations check with your Internet Service Providers or web host. Often the company hosting your web page will offer a free counter solution.
If you wish to create your own counter you will need to create a Perl script, PHP script or other script and either refer to that script through a server side include or other method. If you’re interested in doing this, we suggest learning Perl or PHP.
Users using Microsoft Front Page and have a web page that supports Front Page Extensions can also create a web counter with the included components with Front Page.
In addition to the above recommendations there are thousands of web pages that offers users to user their free counters with only a few lines of code. Below are some links of these pages.
Tip: If your Internet Service Provider does not have any statistics or log system or if you’re looking for something more advanced there are numerous sites and services capable of generating reports for you. One great free example is Google’s Analytics service. This is an extensive service and almost always better than what your ISP is able to provide you.
