A counter keeps track of how many people visited your website. This functionality is not part of HTML language. There are companies and websites that provide this functionality to us. Most of them need us to register. They also provide us additional features like which countries the visitors are from.

Try using the site www.simplehitcounter.com to create simple counter. Enter details in Start counter number at field. Simply select the color of your counter numbers. Select the color of your counter background. Press preview counter button and the web page generate html code.

Copy the code and paste it inside the body tag of your HTML source, save file and refresh page. Now you can see your own counter in web page.

Yes, the above post is right. Creating a web site counter is not supported by HTML although you embed it in an HTML page like for example your index page. Before planning to create your own site counter, you might want to check with your web host, the one who is hosting your web site or with your ISP because they sometimes offer a free web site counter.

If you wanted to create your own web site counter you have to learn first script programming using Perl or PHP. And you may also check in your web hosting company if they support SSI or the Server Side Include because you will be requiring this service with your Perl or PHP counter script.
