At bchost.net we recommend and most often
include the Site Meter service when designing and building
websites. Site Meter is a free service that aids in tracking
visitors to your site. Various graphs are available that
show things like visitor duration, how visitors found your
site, traffic predictions based on history, what time zone
visitors are connecting from and so on. Very handy
information to know.
Site Meter button we most commonly use looks like this...
almost all websites built by bchost.net you'll see the
Site Meter button at the bottom of each page.
Every page containing this button will be tracked for
visitors thus compiling statistics that can be viewed at the Site
With this type of
information you can determine such things as what pages are
attracting visitors and what pages keep them interested for
the longest. You can also determine what search engine's working
best and what online links or advertising works well.
