Then pick one of the gazillion counters offered and read their docs.

That should be comprehensive enough for 50 points.

Hi marcus,
don't put one on your site unless you can hide it. I don't think there's anything as hideous as a counter on a page. Plus how bad work it look if I came to your page today and the counter said 100 and I came back tomorrow and it said 102?
My advise would be to contact you hosting company and ask if you can have access to the stats for your site.

Just my personal view :)

take a look at that page..   stay away from "Free" hit counter services out there because they are usually filled with advertisements.

and i agree with daleran; make it hidden.  the public could care less how many hits you have, they are there for the information.  your the one who wants the counter information.
