A counter on a web page can probably hurt more then help. It is for rookies. I the service http://www.thecounter.com because it provides me with info to let me know which pages are visited and which search engines or links are bringing me traffic. Leave counter off and just have good content. Counters do nothing. If you think a high number makes a difference ...start with a high number. If no one comes to your sight, then a counter is no good. And your content is no good. So what is it... Counter or Content. A Counter is just a toy.
