edit Counter and Statistics Tracker
If the answer is yes, you will need a Site Meter. This device is quick and will keep you informed about the number of people looking at your page and display the statistics on every hour and day. This option is free of charge and is brought to you by SiteMeter.com.
If you need something more complicated that the Site Meter, you have some options of the Site Meter versions. The Site Meter Plus tracks the details of the last 4000 visitors of one site, while the simple Site Meter will show only the last 100. The Plus will move faster when you want to visualize the details, and it can be also made invisible. This upgraded model will also show you some reports about the visitors of the site, while the earlier Site Meter won’t. The Site Meter Plus has many improved features. However, if you need the Site Meter Plus, it will cost you a few dollars a month, while the Site Meter is totally free. If you want to keep things simple, then the Site Meter is the thing for you. Site Meter will not slow the loading of the page.
The Site Meter website has a few helpful sections including FAQs in case you need some help, upgraded accounts, cookies, site referrals and tracking comparisons.
The site presents with the Site Meter Weblog, with postings from the users and all sort of interesting facts and comments about the latest features of the Site Meter. You can find out how to solve Site-Meter-related problems or get answer to the possible questions you might have. In this section you will find an archive of the comments and postings. This archive starts in January 2005. The Weblog is hosted on a different server than the traffic-tracking servers, so that you may have access to it, even if there is a problem at the hosting center.
In case there are changes in status, you will be immediately announced, but you need to enter the subscribing of the web feed.
Last but not least, the Help section will lead you exactly to the FAQs page, and you can handle it from there, as the FAQ section contains all there is to know and all possible questions and answers about the Site Meter.
At the bottom part of the website you will be able to fill in a survey about the site if you want. The survey evaluates how you feel about the site, and will only take a few minutes to fill. This is a very helpful tool for many sites.
The site has a very clear layout; the message is simple and to the point. There are a few ads on the top of the page, but they are discreet and straightforward and won’t bother you at all. And these ads make the Site Meter be free of charge.

- I have been using Sitemeter for years now, on various domains of mine. I think it's better than some of the others that I have used. It gives you so many details but my favorites are the referrals from search engines. Sitemeter Rawks.

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Good: The title tag is a good length.

The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Warning: This page has more than one H1 heading. It should have just one.

Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.SiteMeter.com or SiteMeter.com. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.

Domains that redirect to the home page of SiteMeter.com
Capture visitors who type the wrong name
It can make a lot of sense to redirect a domain to an existing web page. For example, many people are likely to type wikipedia.com when they are really looking for wikipedia.org. Creating a redirect from wikipedia.com to wikipedia.org helps these people get to the site they want.
