i'm just wondering if it's possible to add a counter to my site that just tells me how many people have visited? i don't want to actually display it on my site, that would just be lame. but is there any way i can collect data of how many people have visited my site, then view the data later? even better would be being able to collect data like what browser people were using when they visited my site. and how long they stayed for. it would be useful to have statistics like that available. i'm guessin that all of that sort of stuff would be done through cookies? but my first priority is just to get a simple couter going. so any help with that is greatly appreciated.
