Can I have an hidden counter?

  • Yes, with BelStat PRO you get an hidden counter for a small cost. Moreover, you get professional statistics with it!

Where do I put the code on my page?

  • The code must be paste to the HTML source code of your page.

  • It can be added where you want for as long as it is between the <body> and </body> tags.

  • After you added your code, you must upload your page again to your server.

Where can I find the code for my page?

May I put the code more than once on 1 page?

  • No.

May I put the same counter on more than 1 domain (site)?

  • No. For each site or domain an new counter must be installed.

May the same counter be installed on different or all my pages?

  • Yes. The system keeps track of which pages are visited by how many visitors.

Does the counter has to be visible on my site?

  • With the FREE version of BelStat it is obligatory. The counter must contrast with the colour of your page and be well visible on a screen of  800*600. Sites which do not reply to those conditions can be removed with any warning.

  • With Belstat PRO you have the choice to install our counter with or without an icon on your site. Visitors cannot surf to your result page which is password-proteced anyhow.

Can my results be password-protected?

  • Yes. With Belstat PRO and for a small cost. In the same time you get real professional statistics!

Can I tranfer the results of an other counter?

  • No, we do not take over results of other counters.

Can I start with a number of hits?

  • No, we make statistics with real hits.

Can I reset my counter?

  • No. If you want to restart counting, just create an new counter.

What is a UserID and which one do I have?

  • The UserID is your identification in our system.

  • If you subscribe to our system you may choose your own UserID. If it exists already the system will warn you and ask you to choose another one.

Which password do I have?

  • When you subscribe to our statistics you may choose your own password.

  • If you have lost your password send us an email mentioning your UserID, your site and your email address.

What are keywords?

  • Keywords are requested when you subscribe.

  • Keywords are words which best describe your site and are used to allow our search engine to find your site when visitors search for sites of a certain kind.

Do my results change when I change the colour of my counter?

  • No.

How do I change the language of my counter?

  • If you click your counter you are brought to your result page.

  • You can change the language that users see when they click your counter.

  • To change the language, change the text "lang=en" in the code of your counter:

    • For Dutch: lang=nl
    • For French: lang=fr
    • For English: lang=en

What about Frames?

  • If you have frames on you page, you must make sure that the counter is not loaded more than once in a page view.

  • Best practice is to add our code on the pages which are intended to appear in the 'main' frame.

  • If you put the code in a menu-frame (at the left for example), all your page views will be counted but the system will always register that menu-page as the page and not the pages appearing in the main frame. You will therefore not have the distinction of pages seen in the main frame.

What is a forwarding address?

  • You have a site on an address on the server of your provider and you have a second address (forwaring address) which is forwarded to the first.

What is the problem with a forwarded address?

  • Because your counter is on the server of your provider and not on the server of the one forwarding the address, it is impossible to read the referrer and register certain data.

  • As a result, you will always see the same referrer.

  • We can not change anything to the problem because it has not to do with our system. You should in fact have the same server for your site and the address you use or you should ask the forwarder to do point DNS to your server. Mostly, this is not possible with free domains. In that case you can better choose a low-cost hosting formula (Belstat) and point your domain to it.

  • If you have a forwarded address, you should click the choice when subscribing to our statistics.

I have a MAC and my counter does not work?

  • MAC users have sometimes a copy problem when they get the code from our site.

  • The code contains a couple of faults as follows:

    • // --&gt;
      &lt;/script>
      &lt;!-- End of belstat.be Counter --&gt;

  • Change the code manually into:

    • // -->
      </script>
      <!-- End of belstat.be Counter -->

Can Forum Sites, Topsites etc.. get a Free counter?

  • This kind of non-content sites is specifically checked because they are easily subject to spam.

  • They can get a Free Belstat counter for as long that they do not have more than 2000 page views per day average. When having more than that number of page views they should take a low-cost BelStat PRO counter.

What does "default page" mean in the top list of pages?

  • If a visitor comes to your site without linking to a specific page of your site, our system registers the visitor on the "default page".

  • For example: a visitor clicks somewhere on following link: http://www.mysite.com This will produce a "default page" because no specific page was given. If someone clicks on the following link: http://www.mysite.com/index.htm it would result in a hit for page index.htm in your pages list.

What is the meaning of the IP address?

  • The IP address is the computer address of your visitor.

  • If you see the same address apearing again in your list, it is not absolutely sure it comes from the same computer. Many providers distribute temporary IP addresses which therefore change all the time and can not be allocated to one computer.

What is "no referrer"?

  • "no referrer" means that the visitor to your site is not coming via a link on an other site.

  • He could have clicked to your site in an email, from its favourits or have written your site address in his browser.

May I use autohit systems?

  • No, this is considered as "SPAM".

  • Free counters (MAX) using these systems will be removed without any warning.

I want to print my result pages?
