Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Will the fact that I'm writing a few bytes to a mysql code every time I go to a new page affect performance significantly? I probably won't have more than a few thousand hits a month at best, but I don't want to slow people down.
I've heard that AOL and some other ISP's switch the IP addresses of users while they're online. I suppose this could cause a problem because I could count the same person as more than one unique visitor; but the IP certainly wouldn't change every minute or two, would it?
Am I missing something here or do you think this might be suitable for my needs? I really don't need sophisticated analysis of the paths users follow through the site - though I suppose with the information I intend to collect I could manually figure that type of thing out. Thanks in advance for any guidance.
stuff like that. and feed them to the database.
the info is there anyway, it takes almost no time to store it.
