You then need to ask "do you mean hits, unique visitors or page views?". Many hit counters, such asrepparttar 133616 FrontPage 2000 component can be a little misleading.

Your IP address is an identifier, while you are using it, no else onrepparttar 133623 Internet can utilise that particular set of numbers. Your number is counted once, usually for a 2-24 hour period, dependent uprepparttar 133624 tracking software. So no matter how many times a visitor refreshes or navigates through your web site, they will only be counted once forrepparttar 133625 specified time period.
