What does a web site counter like those offered by Honesty.com count?
If the counter is placed on a specific web page out of several on a
site, does it count only hits on that specific page or hits on any page
of the site?
[ Most of these counters count the number of times the counter is
[ displayed. If the counter's web site places a cookie on the user's
[ machine, it is possible for the counter to indicate something more
[ useful by not incrementing if the same visitor redisplays that page
[ within a specified period of time, such as an hour or a day). In
[ particular, these counters must be incorporated into every page that
[ is to be measured. Some counter sites provide for "invisible"
[ counters, but they still must be accessed and this can slow down
[ access to every page. -- Jody
