I also want to ask a php question. I've made my own counter for my site which stores the ip address of the visitor so it only counts that address one time each day. A few days ago I added a counter from sitemeter.com because I wanted to know more about who visited my site. The problem is my counter has counted about 250 visitors, and the new counter only 20(mostly myself according to sitemeter.com).
I've had a lot of spam on my forum, so I'm guessing that my counter is also counting spambot's or something. Does anyone of you guys know how to filter out the "false" visitors?
