    Hey @LionsWeb16. Since there isn't a counter built into the builder, the only way you'd be able to add one is by using an HTML design element. You would need to find your own script for this though. If your intention is to see how much traffic you're getting, you may want to consider using something like Google Analytics instead. Site counters are not known to be incredibly accurate. I hope that helps.

    I looked at https://statcounter.com/ and their instructions for GoDaddy and could not figure it out.

    https://statcounter.com/godaddy_website_builder/

    After they say click on Edit Site, they say:

     

    1. - Click Pages on the right
    2. - Click the page to add the code to
    3. - Scroll to the bottom of the page
    4. - Click the green + sign above the footer
    5. - On the right scroll down and click HTML
    6. - Click the gray/white box on the upper right
    7. - On the left click where it says "your code will render here"
    8. - Paste the StatCounter code into the "custom code" box on the right
    9. - In forced height put in 2
    10. - Click done at the top
    11. - Do this for every page of your site then click Publish
    12. After that your StatCounter code will be installed on your site
    Your StatCounter will now begin recording visitor information and, if you chose the visible option, your counter will be visible on your GoDaddy Website Tonight site! (The image below shows a sample StatCounter.)
     
    I get lost right at the beginning --- 
    1. - Click Pages on the right
    Maybe the instructions are for a different version of website builder?
     
    Thanks.

    @LionsWeb16 - Yep. Those sound like instructions for GoCentral. You should be able to do something similar in V7 by just placing an HTML box and entering the code there. Based on the fact that they suggest you reduce the size to 2 pixels, it may be that the code doesn't place the counter in the same location that you have the code on the page.

    That makes sense. Thank you. I'll give it a whirl.
