If you want to see how many visitors you're getting, just use Google Analytics. Don't let it intimidate you. It's a free service and in the end it just gives you a tiny little script to include at the bottom of every page. You can then log in and see how many visitors you've received over X amount of time.
A good majority of sites use Google Analytics, including Sitepoint. It's just too easy, too free, and too good not to.
