    Arrow Increase hits

    Heres an easy way to increase the number of hits on a counter...
    could enable you to make your site look more popular or just to make some one elses less acurate, not that you would want to do either of those things of course

    right lift the code for the counter out of the sites source and paste it into a new txt document and save it as .htm

    create a new movie in flash with a keyframe in about frame 16 (if you are operating at 8 frames per sec) and under frame actions put

    ifFrameLoaded (1) {
    getURL ("where\you\save\the\page.htm", "_self");
    }

    the bit in bold change to the addy of the page you have saved on your HD

    now put the flash movie in your saved counter page

    now every 2 secs the counter will register a new hit every time flash reloads the page
    however this only works with web based counters such as those provided by bravenet.com and it will only work if the counter is a hit counter not a visit counter

    Alternatively, why not include the following line in between the header tags in your page:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV=Refresh CONTENT="3; URL=http://www.yoururl.com/">

    This will reload the same page continuously until you close your browser window, so if you leave it running for half an hour or so you should knock up a substantial number of hits!

    Or just bump up the counter!! Most counter scripts allow for this.

    You could always do what porn sites do, (or what I've heard they do) and use
    <BODY onUnLoad="javascript:window.Open(location.href)"> or something like that. Pretty annoying though.

    Most counters do allow a starting number but this isnt good because say you start at 3000. Then in 2 weeks u only get 100 visits. It wouldnt be constant. And using the refresh page every 3 seconds is a bad idea, it will get the visitor really mad. You could put the counter on a seperate page and then make it into an iframe, that wouldnt be bad.

    or you could do something really different to most sites out there (cept for this one of course ) and make a good site that people will want to keep on visiting then watch your counter go up hehehe

    Much easier to just write a perl script to bounce the counter mechanism... *smirk*

    Not that I've done that to friends or anything... "Oh-my-gh0d, my web site got 5k hits last night!" ROFL
