what site counter do you use

and are you happy with it? does it slow your page load like the TLB universe did? that's why it's not linked to my page anymore. slowed me down too much.

i'm using the sitemeter.com freebie counter. it's ok, but it's a little weak in some areas unless you cough up the bucks. i find that the one thing i'd really like to have is the refereing page listed. i can find out what service the visitors have, with some work, and what part of the world they are in, again with some work. but i can't figure out where the refering pages are. not usually a big deal, but take yesterday for example. i had a 3 hour spike of visitors to an older entry. someone linked it. i'd like to go visit. hey, if they are perceptive enough to be reading my site, and linking to me, i'd probably like theirs as well.

any thoughts?

Ali and I both use StatCounter.

The free version gives you a log of the last 100 page views. You can pay and get 1000.

The free one works fine for our purposes.

It also shows referers.

I can tell you that your referrer was Gullyborg.typepad.com at the 28th Carnival of Cordite.

It looks like the problem is that you've added the non-javascript version of the Site Meter HTML to the pages of your site. You'll need to add the javascript version to your pages to track the referrals of your visitors. To get the javascript version of the Site Meter HTML, login to your account on Site Meter and select the "HTML Code" link from the MANAGER page of your account.
