What is Site Meter?

Site Meter is a free, fast, and easy way to add a web counter to your web page. Not only does it display the number of visitors to your web site, it also keeps statistics on the number of visits each hour and each day.

Adding Site Meter to your web page

  1. Register to Site Meter.
  2. Login to your Site Meter.
  3. Go to Manager > HTML Code.
  4. Select the JavaScript or regular version from one of the boxes.
  5. Highlight the HTML code with your mouse.
  6. Copy it to your computer’s clipboard.
  7. Open your web page in an editor (like NotePad) that allows you to see the HTML of the page.
  8. Position the cursor in your page where you’d like the counter to go. A good place is at the bottom of the page right before the </BODY> tag. Paste it into your web page.
  9. Save your web page and upload it to your web server.
