    Counting Traffic

    Hi,
    I use Nedstat, and it seems to work fine, but I want to count traffic on all my pages because most people don't come in from the frost (where the tracking is occuring).
    Will it give me accurate ratings if I add it to all my pages?
    How to I distinct from Hits and Unique Hits?
    Thanks

    You can add nedstat to all your pages and keep tabs on them through mynedstat.com . In this way it will give you an accurate count for each individual page. I'm not sure if it will tell you much more than how the page is accessed and how many hits.

    By searching the forums here I came across http://my.directoris.net and so far it seems ok. It gives you page view time and some other specifics that nedstat didn't. It also allows you to keep the counter invisible. I'm still learning what stuff is there, but you may want to look at it to see if it will give you what you are looking for.

    hope that helps some

    It looks like with NedStat, you have to individually create a link for each page. That would be a pain because each page is Dynamically created.

    Yes, with nedstat you have to individually put the html code on each and every page and create a counter for each new page. If your pages are dynamically created, that would be a royal pain as it takes about 5 minutes to log in and set things up for each new counter.

    They do have a paid version which might be different, though not sure.

    I just signed up and tried:
    http://my.directoris.net
    It's really quite amazing. It tracks all pages, unique visitors, tracks users who are on your page at that very moment, and a bunch of other stuff I am going to play with.
    Thanks for the suggestion!

    try AXS

    www.xav.com/scripts/axs/

    its not remotely hosted, you install it on your own servers, so its more reliable and accurate, and remotely hosted ones tend to slow things down.

    AXS is supposed to be good, but I haven't been able to set it up yet. An alternative is SiteMeter, which, if you put its code on every page, will track your entire site.

    Ya, actually that remotely hosted one does slow things down a lot...
    is AXS just a script I can install? Or do I have to have access to my host directly?

    Over the years I've found nothing works better than your webserver log files and a program (like WebTrends) to read them with.

    Yes, there are instructions and you setup the CGI program yourself.

    The Best I've found is logitPro.

    http://logitpro.com

    It give you a lot of stuff like the http://my.directoris.net but it's ALOT more reliable because you setup the script, it's PHP by the way.

    I've used logit pro, and found it pretty useful myself. However right now I just use Webtrends log analyzer to analyze my raw Apache logs.
