How do I add sitemeter

    Got the counter working, but the “button” still doesn’t show up. I think it has something to do with the template as I’ve switched templates and it shows up in others. FYI.

    Check the “link category” that you’ve added Site Meter has “image” checked in category options. That may be why the button isn’t showing up.

    I put sitemeter in my wordpress hosted blog per the instruction
    on sitemeter’s site, and I see wordpress hits, no referrers though.

    Sample: [swlscroll is my website page for SWL streamers ie. BBC… RNW…]

    Unfortunately, referrals won’t showup because WordPress.com does’t give a way to add the javascript version of the Site Meter HTML. The javascript version is necessary to collect the referrals and a few other bits of visitor info.

    sitemeter (aka david?), does the site meter work slow? from home I was trying to test is and I refreshed the page a few times…….. ok, that worked, got for hits. Then I tested it again, and checked for hits… none. Until this morning when I got four more hits.

    Strange?

    wordpress stats say I have “20 views” but site meter, nothing new.

    What gives?

    onlyinsanfran, until you actually see the Site Meter button on your blog, it hasn’t been added to your blog and itsn’t tracking your traffic. Check the “link category” where you’ve added Site Meter and make sure “image” is checked in category options.

    I did all that. Several times now. I believe it has something to do with the BLIX template I was using. I changed the templates around and saw it in almost every other one of them except.. Blix, the one I REALLY REALLY want to use. Grrrr. So frustrating!!

    Thanks for your help though, I do appreciate it.

    I cant seem to get my site meter to work either, I have added the link no problem, and the “images” box is checked in my link category, but the button is not showing up, and the meter does not seem to be working.

    Ahhh… Apparently someone is working on enabling
    sitemeter for wordpress-hosted blogs…

    Make it not public at SiteMeter’s end.

    I have read through this whole section and still cannot get sitemeter to work on my page to show the button and it actually track. I have used sitemeter for other pages and it has worked fine, but there are problems getting it to show up on my page even though I added the link correctly on a separate category and everything. I like using wordpress but I don’t understand the difficulty in getting it to show up on the page and actually work!

    Hmm, I just realized that we can no longer assign pictures to links. Well that kind of rots….

    Add in the link via a text widget.

    My code for my account would look something like this:

    <a href="http://s23.sitemeter.com/stats.asp?site=s23drmike"><img src="http://s23.sitemeter.com/meter.asp?site=s23drmike"></a>

    Hope this helps,

    I’m a newbie with three blogs. Two are regulus templates and one is andreas 09. I have installed site meters on all of them a month ago and all the site meters are working just fine.

    I have another suggestion for tracking counts and visitors to your WP blog.

    activemeter.com
    use the non-javascript code and paste it in one of the text widgets. It works fine for me :)

    Just to share that my sitemeter is working fine too. And I used Links rather than Text Widget.

    Am I to understand correctly that if I add sitemeter it will show hits but (since we can’t use javascript) I won’t be able to see what URL visitors came from? If that’s so, I won’t bother, since I can already do that with my statcounter account. (I guess that also explains why I can’t get the “came from” and more detailed info from statcounter that I could get when I was on blogspot.)

    Also, I believe that on the sitemeter site it says you can only use the free account if is visible. That if you want your stats invisible, you must pay for the account.

    Would someone either confirm these understandings or correct them? If confirmed, I know to stop trying!

    Thank you!

    All you do to do to get confirmation is to type the URL into your web browser go to the site meter site and read their very clear instructions posted there. I use them on all my sites. No a free account does not get an invisble site meter and no you don’t get the referring URL on a free account either. Is one worth having? I think so. Why because it gives me a great deal more information than the WP stats counters do.

    Just added Site Meter this morning. Just checked and it says my blog got 2 visits in the last few hours and 7 page views. Could someone please tell me what the difference is?

    Also, just checked my own blog stats. It gives 7 people as well. Well, I ‘m only assuming it is people. Could be other beings/robots. ;-)
