I don’t know if I’m jumping the gun here, but it looks like Feedjit – the real time tracking widget that monitors visitors to your website – has pegged it. It’s been down for over a week now. The tracking on my site hasn’t worked for days and it’s not just me experiencing the problem. I completed a contact form to let them know – but I found info elsewhere to say they never reply and I haven’t heard a dicky bird. On Twitter they haven’t tweeted since 2014 and on Facebook they haven’t posted since 2013, so what’s going on?
Rather annoyingly, if you click on their page, their widget is working!
Tried the following that looked OK on the face of it:
Who’s Among Us? doesn’t work, all I get is the script showing as text
I might have found it: Flag Counter.
It’s free (but there is a pro version for $29.99 per year – about £21 in real money) and it’s basically a counter, but it shows the number of visitors from different countries who have visited your site. Every time someone clicks, up pops the number against the country’s flag. You can click on the flag for a more detailed overview and you also get the geographical location of the country and its history! It’s easy to set up and it’s worth registering your counter so you can log in to your management section. There you can ignore your own browser when you visit your own site (that used to work with Feedjit…) and set things up the way you want them. At the moment, I’m using the free version, but the pro has additional features like regional visitor statistics as well as national (though this is standard for visitors from US and Canada).
