What is wrong?
There might be two possible reasons for
that. You may have forgotten to insert your HTML code onto your website
or failed to do it properly. To fix it, please, follow the instructions
given above. Another possible explanation why you statistics haven't
recorded any visit yet is that no one have visited your pages since
you inserted SiteTrafficStats HTML code. You can visit your page yourself
to initiate the stats tracking.
How can I track more than one page?
SiteTrafficStats is developed to track
multiple pages. You are never limited with the amount of your website
pages you need tracked.
Just do not forget to paste your HTML code into every single web page you
want to track the statistics on (find the relevant explanation above).
Can I track more than one site with my SiteTrafficStats account?
If you want to track several different sites with different base URLs,
you will need to set up a separate SiteTrafficStats account for each
unique base URL that you will use.
How to activate SiteTrafficStats service on a Framed Page?
A framed page is basically a main page (e.g. main.htm) made up of two
or more different pages (e. g. frame1.htm and frame2.htm). You can add
the code in the html of any of these frame1.htm or frame2.htm page according
to the above described procedure.
Why do my country reports happen to be inaccurate sometimes?
We resolve the country of the visitor by an IP address and not a Domain
Name (because if you resolve the country by Domain Name, you could not
tell from which country comes visitor whose domain is .net, com, or
.org). However, some Internet Service Providers register their domain
in one country and operate in another country; this might lead to incorrect
What is the difference between a "Visit" and a "Visitor"?
A Visitor is an actual person visiting your site. Visitor are divided
into New and Returning giving you useful information about how many
of your visitors are new, how many of them return to your website and
A Visit then, is a count of actual Visits made to your website. For
example, if a certain Visitor comes to your site 3 times during the
day, your statistics records 1 new Visitor and 3 new Visits. The number
of Returning Visitors also goes up by 2.
However, if that Visitor returns to your website within one hour time,
your overall amount of Visits will grow only once.
What is a "Hit"?
A Hit is equal to a page view; hence to the count of how many times
pages of your website were viewed by your visitirs. Visitors coming to
your site usually view more than one page, so this is useful information
to know the average number of pages your visitors may be exploring.
