I know a little but it seems you are try to create a counter...

The way the code looks like it seems you want to count visits
of the page and show the results.

What you have will only work local once they visit and will not be a true web counter. SO bob in Texas might have 400 hits but you still
only see 10. I think the best way for you to use a counter if you just want it to be local and not a true website counter then I sugjest
that you use cookies that will store their past visits and then it will count from them.

What is your true goal though? A server side counter or client side?
