Using a web counter on your web siteA web counter allows a simple graphical tally of the number of hits on your page (this is only a very rough approximation due to proxies, caching, etc.).

Changing the sizeYou may alter the size of the counter by adding &width=x and & height=y where x and y are measured in pixels. The height will always be as specified, but the width may be wider than specified if needed to fit all the digits and text in.
