There are many ways to count the number of visitors from using cookies to track unique visitors or just a simple php counter to count everytime someone loads your page.

The latter is very simple. Somewhere one the page you want to count put something like this.

<?php
// get the current page count so you can display it
$query = "SELECT `count` FROM `page_count` WHERE `pageid`1 = 'your page title here'";
$result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

while($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
$count = $row['count']; // don't forget the single quotes
}

// increament so you get this current page view
$count ++;

// increament the page count in the database
$sql = "UPDATE `page_count` SET `count` = '".$count."' WHERE `pageid` = 'your page title here'";
mysql_query($sql) or die(mysql_error());

?>

Each of your pages will or should have a title so you could put them in a table and just increment the count for each page. Everytime your page is requested it will run this code and then you have your totals.
