What is a web counter?

A JavaScript web counter (or HTML web counter) is a device which helps you keep track of how many visitors (or hits) your site is getting. Some JavaScript web counters (such as the web counter which WunderCounter offers you) also function as web trackers.

This is just some of the information that you can get about your web visitors:

  • Time of day your visitors arrive
  • What web browsers your visitors use
  • What search engine keywords bring traffic to your site
  • Which sites drive traffic to yours
  • IP numbers of visitors
  • Internet providers of your visitors
  • Monitor resolution of visitors
  • Screen colours of visitors
  • Traffic by month
  • Traffic by weekday
  • Traffic by time of day
  • Traffic patterns through your site
