DevShed:
Tracking Website Statistics with PHP
September 12, 2006 @ 08:16:54

As any developer will tell you, putting a website out on the internet is only half of the equation. The other half is trying to figure out some of the visitors (and how many of them) coming to your site. That's where this new article from DevShed comes in.

If you have a website, especially one that sells products or services, it can be useful to track the visitors to your site. This article explains how to write a program that will do just that.

They offer a database-based suggestion for recording various pieces of visitor information, including: IP address, date/time of the visit, pages viewed, browser type, and the referring page. They give the database structure and the PHP code needed to push the data into it. They also include some simple analysis code/SQL to show the different habits of your visitors and place them into an easy-to-read dynamic HTML page.
