There used to be a few different page hit counters on this site, but the actual hit counter I used stopped working last summer and now the license on the Flag Counter is about to expire so I removed it as well. Of couse I could use the free version of the Flag Counter but it comes with an ad and I have a strict no ads policy on my website. Anyway, during the three years the Flag Counter was running, this site got hits from 167 different countries. So there are no actual counters anymore, but I'm still using Google Analytics to monitor the traffic on the site and AddThis to monitor the social shares and clicks. I've been thinking about starting to use Piwik to monitor the traffic and hits, but it will have to wait until the next major update of the site.
