Tracker code - best placement Should it come only on the home page contentmaster msg:905624 8:46 am on Sep 21, 2005 (gmt 0) I find website visitors tracker tools helpful but have been wondering the best placement for them...
Should the tracker code come only on the home page or is it wise to put the code on all pages? (my site has about 10 pages). Does that give better / different statistics?

If your site is ranked in the engines, and visitors are landing on different pages, then you want your code on those pages too, or else your tracking software will miss those visitors!

Yep - has to be all pages or you will not get good data. MOST tools will track users between pages as unique - the free / cheap / older ones make more mistales thatn others, but you get what you pay for.
