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

put the same counter on more than 1 domain (site)?
May the same counter be
installed on different or all my pages?
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.

Do my results change when I change
the colour of my counter?
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
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
What is a forwarding address?
What is the problem with a
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

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
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"?
means that the visitor to your site is not coming via a link on an
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

systems will be removed without any warning.
