I decided to add a page counter, to see if anybody's actually reading my blog. There are lots around, but I wanted something simple. I have a personal page with Verizon, so I decided to use one of their page counters. Turned out to be pretty easy:
First, I created file counter_blog.html on my Verizon-hosted page which is just:
<html><head></head><body>*** code to make a counter***</body></html>
Where the body is just an image tag. Details are from the service provider.
Now, to put it on this blog, I just used the "add html" option under "layout" on the dashboard, and added an iframe like this:
<iframe src="http://mysite.example.com/counter_blog.html" width=180 height=40></iframe>
And that's it. Happy reading.
