I've seen on other people's blogs that they can see how people reached thier sites. How? Am I missing something? Or is this a feature of haloscan or something?

I use Statcounter, a free service. www.statcounter.com

Lint said...

Yeah, Statcounter works pretty well. And you also can then have a counter so that the whole world can see that a 34 people have visisted your site ever. And most of them are probably you.

well, I have a stat counter on my page, and it's a piece of crap and this one looks 100 times better. But, what I've read on other people's sites is things like "3 people reached my site this month by searching google for 'guy with no sense of humor'" and whatnot. I'll be switching to the counter mentioned, but I was wondering how people know what search strings people typed in to reach thier site.

I use Ad Free Stats. If you click the link on the bottom of my blog you can check out my stats. I can usually see who's visited, where they've come from and what they click on to leave. You just sign up, cut and paste the HTML into your template at the bottom or something.

One of statcounter's services is a keyword analysis. If someone does a click-through on your blog from a search, it will tell you the search string, the search engine, etc. I think it only tells you this stuff when someone clicks the link, though. Check with Maine or Ev @ quietwaterweb.com - Ev does posts about search strings and may be able to help out more.

Tim said...

Do you have richard simmons porn on your site? Cause if you did, it would be dubbed the greatest site of all time.

Steimes said...
