Tracking visits to a Webpage, Website or Blogger Blog (A HOWTO)

This can be accomplished in a variety of ways. However, I'll tell you the one way that I've used that seemed easy to integrate with the Blogger platform.

I am using sitemeter one of the many tracking sites out there.

I admit the following only: their website interface isn't completely smooth. I know what I wanted and for some reason the sitemeter site didn't lead me to it immediately. Maybe they need a step-by-step for the I-am-too-busy-to-read soul?

To add sitemeter.com tracking to your Blogger Blog:

My step-by-step guide

  1. Sign up for an account: Sign-up to Sitemeter
  2. Sign in.
  3. Click on the Manger link [Near the top of the page]
  4. Click on the HTML code link [on the side bar]
  5. For those of you Blogger Users (beta users need a different link), click on the Adding Site Meter to a Blogger or Blogspot site
  6. Use your login/password for blogger, and it can add the Site Meter HTML to your Blogger template.
  7. Or you can add it yourself
    Something like:

    < href="http://s17.sitemeter.com/stats.asp?site=s17yourloginname" target="_top">
    < img src="http://s17.sitemeter.com/meter.asp?site=s17yourloginname" alt="Site
    Meter" border="0" />

To add your sitemeter.com tracking to a webpage/website
  1. Simply put the HTML code of Step 7 of the Blogger tracking into your HTML page.

Hi. Am trying to put on my sitemeter to my new blog and it isn't working doing via html. I was successful with the sitemeter set up initially in my first blog, now on my second one, it isn't working. Could you help? Please? Thanks.

I could certainly try and help. What is your blog address? To start we could look at the HTML source to see if there is something obvious there.

Hi friends... To track the site.. why don't you use the google tools ?

Try using Google Analytics.. The best from the Google..

All the best.

I hope that everyone would definitely learn how to monitor their site visits. A lot believe that just because they have a sales lead software, they're already good to go. Details derived by such analytics software can definitely be helpful when you want to know if your marketing strategies are really working or not.
