>Could someone please tell me how you log visits to your site, and make them so specific. I have heard some people on this message board talk about specific hits to their site. How do they know? Please tell me, I really would like to know this.
>Cheers everyone. Also thanx for the suggestions to my question down below.

Our internet provider has a stats package that comes free with the
hosting charge. But it is often out of order. has a free counter service that we use of
the best freebies on the web. It's not just a counter; it provides all
sorts of other info about site visitors. I learned about
from reading this board!

Note that none of these actually gives the address of the visitor, but
they do provide the url of his internet provider.

Sign up for (it takes about 5 minutes) and paste their code
into your page and you'll see what I'm talking about. I find their
counter to be very unobtrusive and it usually doesnt slow down the
page loading. Also you can make the counter either visible on your page,
or clear so visitors to your site can't follow your hit rate.
