    1. What is a Multipage Counter? - Top

    The Multipage counter allows webmasters to track hits to individual pages of their site using the same counter code on each page. Webmasters who use the Multipage counter can view stats on each page of their site that has the Multipage counter code using just one single account ID! - Updated: May 4, 1999

    2. Why use the Multipage Counter? - Top

    Before the Multipage counter, if you wanted stats on more than one page of your site, (ie. a disclaimer page and a main page), you had two options:

    1. Sign up for a counter account twice, once for each page.

    2. Sign up for a "site counter" that let you use the same counter code on multiple pages of your site.

    This first option was not only time-consuming, it was not a viable way to track more than three or four pages on a site. The second option was a little better, but the stats were not broken down per page; only a total of all pages was presented.

    The Multipage counter is the solution for webmasters who are looking for statistics on many pages of their site, but who do not want to sign up for multiple accounts. - Updated: May 4, 1999

    3. How do I use the Multipage Counter? - Top

    Using the Multipage counter is as easy as using the regular page counter! All you need to do is sign up for a SexList counter and specify that you would like Multipage stats. Then paste the counter code presented to you on every page of your site that you want stats on. You don't have to modify the counter code for each page, the counter will auto-detect what page it is on when it is loaded. - Updated: September 23, 1999

    4. How do I view my Multipage stats? - Top

    The Multipage stats are not too different from the regular page stats. We have tried to keep the look and feel you are used to so that stats navigation is clear and intuitive. When you first log in to your stats, you will see your site's total stats at the top in a quick view format. These are the totals of all the pages of your site with our counter code. Below that will be a graphical hourly breakdown of the total stats for your site as a whole.


    Below the quick view totals, you will see a link titled "View Site Tree" with options to view in a Java applet or in HTML. Below that is a another link, "View Page List". That link will load a page that displays all the pages the Multipage counter is tracking, sorted by unique hits. You can sort the pages alphabetically, by impressions, or by uniques. To change the sorting order, simply click on the corresponding link at the top of the table. To view detailed stats on a particular page, simply click on that page's URL in the table. As always, you can use the calendar in the left frame to view totals by day, week, month, or year.

    5. What is the Site Tree applet? - Top

    The Multipage Site Tree is a Windows Explorer-style view of all your site's pages. It replaces the calendar in the left frame with a small Java applet so that you can easily view stats for every page without switching back and forth between the page list and page stats. - Updated: May 4, 1999

    6. How do I use the Site Tree applet? - Top

    Using the Multipage Site Tree is very intuitive. If you've used Windows Explorer, you can use the Site Tree applet. The Site Tree displays folders and site pages. Pages are organized in a directory tree so that each directory contains at least one page, and may contain other directories. Directories can be expanded to any depth and can hold an unlimited number of pages. When the applet loads, you will see at least two items in the menu. The first is the Help page. Clicking on it will bring up this page in the stats frame. The second will be a folder with your site's domain name to the right of it. Click on it to view its contents. Mouseing over any item in the menu (except the Help page) will cause that page or folder's total impressions and uniques to display in the status bar of your web browser. These are the impressions and uniques for ALL directories and pages under that directory. There may be other folders displayed when the applet loads. This can happen if you have multiple subdomains for your site, ie. www.sexlist.com, stats.sexlist.com, info.sexlist.com, search.sexlist.com, etc. Each of those folders will contain the pages and subdirectories under that domain. When you click on a page icon, you will see the detailed statistics for that page load in the stats frame. You may also see stats load when you click on a folder. This happens when the folder's name (ie. beta.porncity.net/001) is an actual URL that surfers have hit. No stats will load if the folder is not an actual URL on your site that can be hit. - Updated: May 4, 1999

    7. How do I view day/weekly/monthly/yearly stats using the Site Tree Applet? - Top

    Using the Site Tree applet for day ranges is easy. First, you need to load the calendar into the left frame. If the Site Tree applet is loaded, click on the - Updated: May 4, 1999

    8. What if I don't have Java support/am on a slow connection? - Top

    If for some reason using the Site Tree applet is not a viable option, you can always use the HTML version of the Site Tree. Click on the - Updated:

    9. How do I use the HTML Site Tree? - Top

    Using the HTML version of the Multipage Site Tree is not quite as convenient as the applet version, but still quite easy to use. Clicking on the - Updated: May 4, 1999

    10. How do I remove/add a page to my Multipage stats? - Top

    To remove a page from the stats, simply delete the Multipage counter code from that page - you will no longer receive stats for that page. The same applies to adding a page - simply paste the Multipage counter code to the page, and we will instantly start tracking hits for that page. - Updated: May 4, 1999

    11. Can I get Multipage visitor/referrer stats? - Top

    Multipage visitor stats is not supported right now. As a workaround, you can paste the visitor stats code on multiple pages of your site, but the stats will not be separated by page - it will be a total of all pages. - Updated: May 4, 1999

    12. Why do I get an 'unknown' link as a referrer? - Top

    These referrers either came off of a bookmark, typed in your URL in the browser window or are using a browser type that cannot resolve the URL from. This is qualified traffic with an unknown referrer. - Updated: May 12, 1999

    13. Why do URL's appear in my Page List that are not on my site? - Top

    This is due to a bug common in many browsers. It seems that some browsers cache certain values that the Multipage counter makes use of. Apart from cluttering the Page List and Site Tree applet, these links usually do not show more than one or two hits per day. - Updated: September 23, 1999

    14. Can I use the same Multipage counter code across different domains? - Top

    No. If you are interested in tracking multiple sites, you can either:


  • Sign up for the Multipage counter for each unique domain.

  • Sign up for the Network Counter, which is tailored for tracking stats across a network of sites.
