How can I Track my website Visitors ?
Counters are heavily used on web sites by newbies but
appear unprofessional. It is very common to go to a page and see
something like “You are visitor number 12345 to this page”.
These numbers cannot be trusted as the page designer has the
ability to seed the base number or to alter the counter such
that it adds more than 1 each time.
Access log will give you information
about who visited your site, which pages they visited, and how
long they stayed on the site.
You can also use tracking software.
Yes, tracking software details the path a visitor takes through your Website, so they do more than just count your traffic: they track it. Tracking software tells you more than just the number of visitors — it can break visitor statistics
down by date, time, browser, page viewed, referrer, and countless other values.
Agent Log also provides information on which browser and operating
system was used to access your site.
The Webalizer is a fast, FREE, web server log file analysis program which produces usage statistics in HTML format for viewing with a standard web browser.
Counters and Trackers often require you to place a button or graphic on your site in exchange for the free use of their service, which is not ideal for most site owners. So try to avoid using these services unless you don’t have the ability or expertise to execute tracking scripts of any kind on your own server.
Web Traffic Analysis Software also used for tracking the website.
These are programs that analyze your server logs and then create
traffic reports accordingly.
