You will be asked to provide some details about your site, including the web address of your site. Be sure to use the address of your WordPress setup here. If you have a domain http://www.my-cool-domain.com but your WordPress setup loads from a sub-domain like http://blog.my-cool-domain.com or from a sub-directory like http://www.my-cool-domain.com/blog then be sure to use the proper address for your WordPress setup. (tip: you’ll find it in WordPress here: “Settings” > “General” )

Once you’ve provided your site info, you will be asked about a counter or button type. We advise the “Invisible Counter” option, so your site remains under your control and not cluttered with a visible counter box.statcounter invisible tracking
