asp.net 3.5 hit counter

Hi experts

Using asp.net 3.5 with vb.net as the code-behind, has anyone got any examples of a hit counter, I need the counter to increment for each visitor to the site and not every time the page is loaded, hope somebody can help.

Here is an example I found here:
http://www.daniweb.com/web-development/aspnet/threads/5145


PrivateSub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) HandlesMyBase.Load

IfNot Page.IsPostBack Then
Dim nCount As Int32 = 0
nCount = GetCounterValue()
lblTest.Text = nCount.ToString()
EndIf
EndSub

PrivateFunction GetCounterValue() As Int32

Dim ctrFile As StreamReader
Dim ctrFileW As FileStream
Dim sw As StreamWriter
Dim strPath AsString = Server.MapPath("indexcount.txt")
Dim strCounterContents AsString
Dim nCounter As Int32
 
If (File.Exists(strPath)) Then
ctrFile = File.OpenText(strPath)
strCounterContents = ctrFile.ReadLine().ToString()
ctrFile.Close()
nCounter = Convert.ToInt32(strCounterContents)
Else
nCounter = 0
EndIf
nCounter += 1
ctrFileW = New FileStream(strPath, FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.Write)
sw = New StreamWriter(ctrFileW)
sw.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(nCounter))
sw.Close()
ctrFileW.Close()
Return nCounter
EndFunction

  
PrivateSub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) HandlesMyBase.Load

sw = New StreamWriter(ctrFileW)
sw.WriteLine(Convert.ToString(nCounter))
sw.Close()
ctrFileW.Close()
Return nCounter
EndFunction

When users hit your site, do they have to log in or do you need a counter for the interface page?
