We often get the question: "Who needs a hit counter or visitor counter nowadays?
Well sure, there are super advanced web analytic tools like Google Analytics to track nearly everything about your website visitors and e-commerce clients. But does our visitor counter service compete with such a advanced and complicated tool?
The answer is: No not at all! Our web counters serve a very different purpose!
With our free hit counter service you can see how much people visited your site very quickly and easily every time you visit your website. You donīt have to login in a analytics account using your email and a password and sort through hundreds of pages of analytic data. All it takes is a visit on your website and you are updated!
Another reason to use a visitor counter service like ReliableCounter.com is to show your visitors how much people already visited the website before. Analytic services let you analyse your web traffic deeply, but a huge visitor count is something you should not keep to yourself. Its social proof, to show your visitors how much people before already trusted and liked your website! This is a major factor to use a visitor counter service like ours and there are even more good reasons!
More about our hit counter service
Like all our services our visitor counter service is entirely free, and there’s no registration or sign-up process required to use them. Simply take some time to browse through the different counter styles – we have over four hundred, organized by category to your left – and, when you’re ready, select the one you’ve chosen by clicking the radio button next to the sample image. You’ll be taken to a page where you can select between a couple of different options – what number you’d like your hit counter to start on, and whether you want it to count all page views or just unique IP hits. Tell us the address of the page or blog you want to use the webstats on, click ‘Get My Code’, and voila! The relevant snippet of HTML is all ready for you to cut and paste straight in to wherever you want it to display.
Here at ReliableCounter.com, we’ve been supplying our 64,000+ users with accurate, reliable visitor counter services since 2007. We’ve done so well with this that recently we’ve branched out and also offer a QR code generator. We’ve all seen them around: QR barcodes are fast becoming invaluable for engaging a user with your website when they’ve stumbled across you in another media. They’re useful on business cards, adverts, leaflets, shop windows…anywhere someone might see it while holding their phone.
Seems to us, though, that they’re just as powerful a tool when used the other way around. They don’t just connect users with a website they’ve encountered while out and about – they can also help your visitors quickly and easily integrate your services with their daily lives. Using a QR code displayed on your website someone can access a URL instantly on their mobile browser, save your contact information to their address book, check out your location on Google Maps (and generate directions for how to get to you, too), send a predefined email or SMS – such as to a subscription service – automatically, call your telephone number, bookmark your website, visit the iTunes store or Android market page for your product, or connect with a predefined WLAN network.
It’s not hard to do, either. With our simple, free generator, you can have a QR code that does exactly what you want it to ready in minutes – with no hassle and no timewasting. Check out the QR page to see how easy it really is. There’s no technical expertise required at all, and you’ll be good to go in no time.
We all have burning questions we want answered. Our latest venture, the Reliable Answers blog, aims to help you out with some of them: what is the best way to cure a hangover? How can I survive the zombie apocalypse? Where are the best places to buy unique, unusual gifts online? Whether your question is idle speculation, last-minute desperation or simply the subject of a heated pub argument, we’re putting together an invaluable resource to help you get to the bottom of it. New answers are being added all the time, and we’re being careful to make sure that we’re writing about the things you want to read about – particularly the ones that it’s not always easy to find a concise, definitive answer to elsewhere.
