Site Meter

A lot of people use Site Meter for tracking visitors to their blogs because it is free and easy to use. I’ve been using it for 3 years and now and it’s great.

Last night the lovely discovered the little rainbow coloured Site Meter icon. She noticed it on other blogs and had to have it on her site immediately! She’s becoming dangerous on that G3 laptop.

A couple of things you should know about Site Meter. If someone clicks the Site Meter icon on your site they will be able to view you website statistics. The default setting for Site Meter is to make your site statistics public.

If you don’t want everyone to know how many visitors you have, who’s on your site right now and where they are coming from, make your statistics private. Go to the Privacy Level settings in your Site Meter account and change the Privacy Level to high.

Site Meter has updated the options for the HTML code you place on your pages to track web traffic. If the code on your site is XHTML (and if it’s not is should be) then update your code so that your pages validate properly.
