Flag Counter Web Page Stats

Updated on September 27, 2009

My Worldwide Web Page Stats

I just found out I'm popular in Singapore. O.K. so not me, but my lens on The Ugly Truth Soundrack. I just added a Flag Counter to track Web Page Stats.

Turns out people worldwide from 57 different countries have visited my lens since I started tracking it with the Flag Counter Web Page Stats. I first learned of this cool Flag Counter from Tipi who used it to track visitors to her popular lens about America's Got Talent winner Kevin Skinner.

Over 50,000 people from over 136 countries have visited Tipi's lens dedicated to Kevin Skinner. If you'd like to add a Flag Counter to your lens, it's quick and easy to do.

Use the Flag Counter Web Page Stats On Your Blog or Website

Lately, my lens The Ugly Truth Soundtrack has been picking up visitors. I couldn't figure out why because this movie was released back in July 2009. Looking at my Squidoo statistics, it appears in the past week, many visitors were coming from international search engines.

Web Page Stats Track What Countries Are Visiting Your Lens

Then I added this Flag Counter of Web Page Stats which tracks visitors and what country they're visiting from. Mysterious solved. The top countries of recent visitors include Singapore, India & the Russian Federation. The movie was just released in those countries, so it helped renew interest in The Ugly Truth Soundtrack.

How Will I Use This Information?

It never occurred to me to proactively target search engine traffic internationally or look for news about when movies premiere in each country. This is great because with the staggered foreign movie release dates, it gives me ideas on how to keep the content fresh to extend the shelf life of this lens.

Web Page Stats For Your Lens, Blog or Website

I'm no technophile so that fact that I could easily add this line of HTML code with no fuss was great. You just insert this code on any Squidoo module which accepts HTML code just as you would any HTML text. I used the text module to paste in my flag module under "Enter your text below".

Go to Flagcounter.com. You don't even have to sign-up and memorize any sign-in codes. You get assigned a code immediately online. You don't have to wait for a code to be verified or sent by e-mail.

Just follow the easy instructions under "Create Your Free Flag Counter". You can play around with the number of columns. I suggest checking off the box on the right hand side that says "Show Country Codes". Then when you like what you see, click "Get Your Flag Counter". Then just copy the code for websites.

FAQs & Tips About Flag Counter

If after you've installed your flag counter, you want to change the number of columns or other parameters, no big deal. Don't get a totally new code, just change the HTML formatting code directly on your lens so you don't lose the web page stat tracking information already collected. Advanced instructions on how to make those changes here.
