I have like almost 500 hits on my counter today (normally around 80 per day), is that real? How can I check if it is real or somekind of spam>

You're getting popular... After this post you'll have even more hits :)
Lots of people dont allow to set up cookies thats why the numer can be so big. Other thing are ROBOTs (search engine programs which collects links) they also can make a lot of hits.

750 today! even more. just means you're getting clickedy clicked more.

over 2000!? Something is not right. I put a counter on the page, and it seems to have not as many hits...
Maybe you count every click through your site - view of 10 photos then is equal to 10 visitors, 20 to 20, 35 to 35, etc.??

that's what I think too. What should I change in the code to display unique visit?
It looks like problem with setting cookies by server :/

what does that mean? do you guys have the same problem?
I dont have. My counter is stoped after PP upgrade and with old tag (I dont have time to change to the new one).

can I know which tag should I use?

I was using the advanced stat actually. Now I deleted that add on and use the normal counter, it's the same. I also upload again the number of visitor today addon, it's still the same.
Funny coz even under 1.5 alpha ... this addon works OK :)
Did you do all what is wrote in addon section of admin panel??
09-16-2005, 11:32 PM
Does this addon affects <STATS_VISITORS_TODAY> tag? Cause this is not working well too.
09-16-2005, 11:36 PM
This is the instruction in admin page, there is nothing much to do other than change the tag to have <ADVNCD_SITE_VISITORNUMBER> :
Advanced stats (advanced_stat.php - version 1.0)
This adddon manages the pixelpost stats and works in coherence with visitors table.
New tag: <ADVNCD_SITE_VISITORNUMBER> instead of <SITE_VISITORNUMBER>
Summerize records of currnt month untill today into the stats table?
Number of all visitors: 10956 -- Number visitors this month: 0
<ADVNCD_SITE_VISITORNUMBER> - that is new tag :D
Does it work now??

No it does not seem to work fine, I put another counter, and it shows much less traffic. I am not sure what to do.
09-20-2005, 12:12 AM
And today, the counter = 0, even though there are visitors, I checked that from another counter on the same page. I think I may just delete the tags ;(
Do you have commented:
If so uncomment it.
09-20-2005, 03:52 PM
no, that line is not commented.
So I dont have any other idea :/
09-20-2005, 08:21 PM
it's ok, thanks.

If you are interested in stats (unique visitors, page views, referrers, etc) you should look into Mint ($30 stats package :: http://www.haveamint.com). It is an awesome stats package with an open API for people to build custom modules (peppers : pepper + mint :) )for it. JLencioni built a sweet little pepper for pixelpost comments (http://www.shiftingpixel.com/peppers/).
You can also set a cookie in your computer to ignore your visits to your own blog and have only the real outside visitors be counted.
Totally worth the $30.

yeah, I am using another counter now, not the mint but by the same author.
