Default Install Guide

These instructions assume that you are installing StatCounter on a standard, directly edited website (i.e. that you access and edit the raw code of the site).

  1. Copy the code above (CTRL+C)
  2. You now need to access the raw code of your website. The raw code of your site will look something like this: Raw Code Of Your WebSite
  3. Generally, you access the raw code of your website using the FTP login details for the site.
  4. The FTP details will usually be available from the hosting provider (e.g. HostGator or JustHost.com in Ireland) OR from your Server Administrator.
  5. You can use any website editing software e.g. Editplus to log into your site and edit the raw code. Editplus
  6. It's very important to install StatCounter in the correct place on your website i.e. just inside the closing "body" tag - </body> - as indicated below. Simply copy and paste your StatCounter code into this position on each page of your website. Don't forget to save your changes. Editplus
  7. If your website contains a small number of pages it will be easy to do this manually for each page. If your website contains a large number of pages, you may want to investigate installing StatCounter automatically on all pages of your site, or perhaps editing the template of your website (if used) to include StatCounter in the footer of all your pages.
