Adding a Frontpage Counter

Web Site Management

You can maintain your Web site through reports which give you a bird's eye view of the health and vitality of your site. Broken hyperlinks, slow pages, stale pages, quantity of pictures, and links are available in a report.

Hit Counters will provide you with the number of visitors to a given page. This allows you to see the popularity of specific pages in your site, although most Web sites usually put a Hit Counter only on the home page.

To add a Hit Counter

  1. Double-click the home page in Navigation view to open it for editing.
  2. From the Insert menu, click Component, and then click Hit Counter.
  3. Select the number style you want and click OK.
  4. Type Visitors since and today's date (for example, Visitors since 4/10/2000).
  5. Save your work.

To view site statistics

  1. From the View menu, click Reports, and then click the report that you want.
    If you want an overview of the entire range of items tracked on your site, click Site Summary.
    Click Reports on the Views bar to display the last selected report.
