Hit Counters

Every time a template is accessed a counter is incremented. To display the number of hits, put the following variable in any template:

{hits}

The hit count for each template can be manually altered in the template’s preferences under Developer Tools ‣ Template Manager.

Entry “View” Tracking

In addition to tracking page hits, EE lets you track the number of views a particular channel entry has received. For more information regarding this feature please read about the track_views= parameter.
