Creating A Counter

This page helps you create a counter.

Step By Step

To create a counter, you need to do the following things:

  1. Examine the Policies Page about the fair use of Web-Counters.
  2. Fill out the following form describing the page to be counted and press the Create Counter button below. Make sure you read the resulting page which is returned.
  3. Insert somewhere in your web-page (on top, in the middle, or at the bottom) the HTML code which is returned by the creation form. This code is also available from the Usage Page.
  4. Now go ahead and load your home page on your web browser. Your counter should be visible. If it is not, see our FAQ or Troubleshooting pages.
  5. If you are using our free counter services, we ask you to credit the Web-Counter somewhere on your home-page by using its name and/or logo and with a HTML link to the following URL. See the Thumbnail Page for instructions.

That is about it. If you do not understand these directions or have no idea what HTML is or how to use it, please see the links to additional information in the FAQ Page.

Creation Form

Counter Name * The Web-Counter identifies which counter is being requested by using a special string which it calls the Counter Name. To create your own counter, you need to dream up name for your counter. This string gets entered below and is also used as an argument to the web-counter in the IMG entry in your home-page HTML code.

Since we have a lot of counters, you need to try to choose a unique string. Don't worry. If the name you choose is already in use, the web-counter will return an error asking for you to try it again. If you are at a loss, feel free to use your email-address as the counter name.

Please Note: The web-counter will rewrite your counter, replacing some weird non-alphanumeric characters with the underscore _ character. Make sure you note the exact counter that was created as well as the HTML code that was returned after successful creation of your counter. In addition, understand that the case (whether upper or lower) of the characters in the counter name is significant.

Starting Count *

Starting Count is the number to which you want to initialize your counter. For example, if you have had approximately 100 accesses to your page before creating the counter, then enter 100 here.

Your Email Address *

Please identify yourself with your email address below. This address will not be publicized to any other organization. It will be used by Web-Counter support personnel to contact you if necessary.

URL of page *

Please enter the URL of the page you are counting. If you are using your counter to keep track of the usage of a number of pages, then just enter your main page here. Please make sure that your URL is correct. If you do not have a proper URL at this time, if the page is restricted, or not yet installed, please leave this field blank.

Please note that the URL must begin with http://

Your Country *
Your Time zone *

Please have patience when creating. After you have pressed the submit button, if the server is busy, it may take as long as a minute or so to respond with the confirmation of your new counter. However, you should get some response within a minute. If you get an error from your browser saying that the page timed out or if you get no response, please try resubmitting the form at a later time.

Please remember: If you are using our free counter services, you must to credit the Web-Counter somewhere on your home-page by using its name and/or logo and with a HTML link to the following URL. See the Thumbnail Page for more instructions.

In addition, you should examine the Policies Page about the fair use of free Web-Counters.
