StatCounter is probably the best free tracking service you can find. I am using it on every single site that I have and I have more than 440 sites.
We have 300+ porn sites, read my article on How me make money using porn sites.
Statcounter is a free tool, you can use free version and if you need something more advanced you can get Advanced version (5-100$) depending on your needs.
Free version is enough if you need your analytics for less than 20000 unique visitors per day per website. It’s perfect for a niche websites with 10000 and less visitors.
How to Register your StatCounter account?
If you want to register your account on StatCounter, go to their Homepage through this link. Now click on this green Try it for FREE button and it will redirect you to the register page.
StatCounter will never ask you for any Credit card detail or your Paypal details.
So let’s start, in the Name field enter your Real name. Enter your Email in the Email field (enter valid mail).
In the Username field enter your Nickname, and there is one more empty field left on your register form and that’s your password, so put some 10+ letter password there and you are ready to go.
Accept terms and click Create account button.
You will get this Add your project page, In project URL box enter your website’s URL, (enter only Homepage link – main domain)
Enter Project title for example: Onlineadrian Website. Choose your country and your timezone.
If you do not want to get spammy mails from Statcounter click None for Email Reports.
Now if you do not want to show your tracking button with visitors count on your website, choose Invisible tracking. If you want to show this small button with your visitors count, choose Visible counter.
And now click on the Add Project button and you are almost done.
You can choose Installation Guide for every CMS and website type but I will show you how to install Statcounter code on your WordPress site.
(You can install code on this way on other CMS scripts as well)
Now click on blue hyperlink: Default installation guide
You will get on this page where you will copy this Standard code from your code box.
Now you will go to your WordPress site, navigate to Wp Admin and go to Appearance -> Editor.
From templates on right side of your screen choose Header.php if you want to use invisible tracking.
Now find </head> and paste Statcounter code before that line.
Save file and that’s it, you are done.
But I want to show my button with visitors count on my website?
– If you want to show Visitors count paste your Statcounter code anywhere in Footer.php.
(You can use this button only if you choose Visible tracking)
That’s it. Now you will count every visitor on your site.
