Site Meter is a free, fast, and easy way to add a web counter to your web page. Not only can it display the number of visitors to your web site, it also keeps statistics on the number of visits each hour and every day. It also provides detailed information about these visitors. These statistics are provided in real time so they are always up-to-date.
I found the tools are much more faster to load compared to the more complex counters without compromising the detailed information. You need to register first at www.sitemeter.com to open a free account. Of course, you may opt to upgrade to a more detailed version in their premium version (starting from $6.95 per month)
The only disadvantage is that you need to login to your account to get the detailed information on your traffic, rather than getting it on the site itself. However, SiteMeter will email details of your site traffic on weekly basis.

The graphic display is not as outstanding as NeoWorx widgets but it provides a more detailed information on the traffic.

If you monetized your blog, the most important factor is traffic. Of course the content of your blogs should be interesting enough to attract more traffic. How would we know how many visitors we get? Where do these visitors come from? One of my personal favorite is NeoWorx traffic counter. They have a lot of traffic widgets for your blog. Some of it are free while others require some minimal yearly subscription. Check out the following widgets and pick one that suit your needs. The only setback with these tools is that they are quite time consuming to load up on your page.
This widget allows you to track the number of visitors to your site. The best part is you can customize the widget to either display visitors by country or by city. Choose between total visitors or daily visitors. You can also differentiate the visitors currently online or those who had left your site.
