Installing Web-Stat on your site

step-by-step instructions

What do I need to do ?

For traffic analysis to start you need to add a few lines of HTML (the Web-Stat code) to all of your site's pages (at least to the main entrance page if you can not install on all pages)

How do I go about it ?

Ideally the code needs to be added directly inside the page's HTML. Depending on how you go about editing your web site, the exact way to do this will vary. You will find below step-by-step instructions for a few well known editors, as well as more general instructions if your own editor is not in the list.

If you do not know how to make changes to your own site, you'll need to ask your webmaster to do the installation: simply tell him that he will find all necessary instructions at http://www.web-stat.com/code.pl, give him your account's ID, and he should be able to do the installation for you in a few minutes.

Keep in mind that in almost every case, as long as your site can be edited, Web-Stat can be installed (even if you don't have direct access to your HTML). If you get stuck, contact us and we'll help you out.
