Does W3Counter work on MySpace profiles?

MySpace does not allow JavaScript-based trackers to operate on profile pages. You can still keep track of how many visits your profile receives and other information by using only the portion of the tracking code between the <noscript> and </noscript> tags. Some reports will not have data without the full tracking code.

Does W3Counter work with WordPress.com blogs?

While W3Counter can be used on a self-hosted WordPress(.org) blog, blogs hosted by WordPress through their hosting service cannot run JavaScript-based plugins. You can still keep track of how many visits your blog receives and other information by using only the portion of the tracking code between the <noscript> and </noscript> tags. Some reports will not have data without the full tracking code.

W3Counter is logging my own visits, how do I stop this?

To filter your own visits from your reports, log in to your W3Counter account, then click "My Account" at the top of any report. Click on "Filter" in the account menu to set a cookie which will tell W3Counter to ignore visits from that browser. You should repeat this on each computer you want to ignore.

What is the default time zone for the reports?

Any dates or times shown are US Eastern time.

Do I need to add the tracking code to every page of my site?

Yes, in order to track activity across your entire site, the tracking code should be added to every page. With most websites you can do this easily by adding the code to a global template or footer template file.
