Is there a way to make the hit counter, count only new visitors?  If not I need to figure out how to get a hit counter.  I don't like the free ones out there, they all have there logo on it.

You can depend on cookies to do that,  which might give you an approximate accuracy.

1- Make a welcome page with a form with enter button
2- The form with enter button writes to a database
3- When the user presses the button you check if he/she has cookies from your site.  If yes,  do not count,  else add 1 to the database.
4- Create an ASP page that query the total of the numbers added.

Here you can find a nice tutorial about creating an ASP hit counter.

The free counters I put are "FREE SCRIPTS FOR COUNTER",  I did not provide free counters with Adds.

This free code can be used FREELY on the website and it is not copyrighted.
