    I can’t see it on my web page. Do I have to republish my iWeb site to get it on there?

    Thanks for the counter, but when I go to the site, it still shows as 1, it does not count.

    very good idea! i’m not sure how many people know this, but you could also just go to iweb and click

    insert > button > hit counter

      I know that but when i try to do it and publish my site, it is not on the site. I have seen many forums about this problum.

      Built in counter only works when published to MobileMe, same with blog and photo comments.

        Thank you Sam, I’ve been hunting for 2 hours trying to find out why the counter didn’t show up.

    this works great. If you use the hit counter provided by iWeb…. the insert>button>hit counter…. you only get their big clunky counter. This one from ezeeinternet (link provided in the original how-to), then you can choose from many different sizes, fonts, colors, appearances. And the one in iWeb counts every time you visit your own site (for example, when you update it and want to visit it, or when you want to visit it to see how many visitors have been counted!) — the other counter only counts unique visitors. So much better.

  8. Also u can use seperate counter for each site to get more information about your subpages
