Counter Script Counts?


Recommended Posts

Hi Lou,


Yes, I agree with Thomas on that - don't know about the one provided in cPanel, but some of them even count every single "hit" on the site (individual page elements, images that have been viewed etc). That's how you end up seeing what looks to be impossibly high visitor numbers on some sites that you visit (x zillion visitors since last month etc).


Much better to use one of the stats programs also included in cPanel (AWStats, Webalizer etc) as they provide you with a full breakdown of the figures and let you see what's really happening on your site.


Hope that helps :P

The cPanel counter counts how many times that script has been run. So depending on what page you add the script to will tell you how many times that page has been accessed. If someone refreshes the page the hit counter will be incremented.


Does that help explain it. Counters are so yesterday. Use the stats provided from Awstats for mor accurate information.
