    In addition to the ones mentioned above I use getclicky.com. It has a pretty detailed log of the number of visits and where they are coming from.

    I second, third and so on the people who say Analytics. I have implemented it in my sites and it helps keeping track of my visits. Not to mention that, when I try to sell a site or just advertising, any potential client wants to see my analytics stats. It's some sort of a "norm" now, so I recommend it too. Not to mention it's easy to use and FREE.

    Yes, you can easily check via Google Analytics and Google webmaster. You can track visitors, where they come from as well as traffic rates and bounce rates etc.
