Over the last few days, I've inserted StatCounter code into the template for this blog, my personal site, and the site for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Association of Santa Clara Valley. While the code worked fine for this blog, I ran into a problem with the other two sites. My personal site and the MLK site have pages that are maintained using Microsoft Word.
The StatCounter service is excellent: it provides free detailed information about traffic to one or more websites. One feature I really like is that it offers the option to install a cookie on the webmaster's computer, so that traffic to the site from the webmaster's computer will be excluded from the statistics.
