Any counters that don't count when I update my web page?

Are there any counters out there that will not count EVERY time I go to my page to update it?

Thanks for help on this!

Most page counters are really quite stupid creatures - they just count every access to a page. Every time you re-load the page, up it goes. So, basically - no, not really.

If you know you're going to be working on your page for a while, & re-loading it a lot, you could always just comment out the code for the counter temporarily, & then re-enable it when you're done - that'd help.

Thanks, never thought of doing that.

If you know a bit about coding, you can store the last IP address in the file with the count number and not update when the IP is the same.

Yup, that's what I do with mine
