Most web analytic tool like Sitemeter, Statcounter, etc offer display counters to show on your site… most, except Google Analytics. The lack of a visitor counter in Google Analytics is fulfilled by Sharega.

To do this first you have to authorize Sharega to access your Google Analytics reports by adding it as a User. The steps required to prepare your account for this is detailed on their site. Sharega will have permissions to only view your reports and not edit your account in any way.

Once Sharega has been allowed access to your account, grab the HTML codes from the site and place it where you want it to appear on your website. There are 3 different codes available – one each to display the daily unique visitors, the daily page views and a combined one that display both.


Clicking on the counter takes the visitor to a page where they can see the site’s recent traffic trend in the form of a graph. If you want your visitors not to see the graph simply remove the page link from the HTML code.
