StatCounter on myspace

Further to a number of queries, here are the steps to follow to install StatCounter on a myspace profile.

With StatCounter you can track hits to your myspace page and learn about your myspace profile views.

First Things First…
In your StatCounter account, you MUST generate HTML-only code for your myspace profile. This is really important, so don’t forget! (This is due to policies imposed by myspace.)

Step 1
Log into your myspace. Go to the “Profile” menu and click “Edit Profile”.

Step 2
Paste your StatCounter code into the “About Me” section. Click “Save Changes” and that’s it!

Your StatCounter will now begin recording visitor information and, if you chose the visible option, your counter will be visible on your myspace page! (The image below shows a sample StatCounter)

To assist you further, we’ve also put together a video tutorial which you can see below…

As always, comments, questions and feedback are welcome!

  1. Another useful feature, thanks! I’m still having trouble getting SC to work with WordPress though. A feature similar to this would be useful with troubleshooting! Thanks…

  2. I’m also using the HTML-only counter on my Squidoo profile (I just put it into my Bio field). It’s really handy to track the traffic this way. It should work with all your social networking profiles which allow you to put some simple HTML code on your profile.

  3. I have been using statcounter on Myspace for over a year.

    I placed the html code in the HEADLINE section and it works like a champ.

  4. Of course you do know, now that this information is out there Myspace will hastily find a way to block this counter, too. Statcounter cannot give you much information if you are wanting to know if one person in particular is checkin’ out your myspace page unless you know their IP or if they are the only ones you know who live in a particular state/city or use a certain browser that is not extremely common, like Chrome or Safari.

    Not to be selfish or anything (I do want to share a great product when I find one), but maybe that post was not a good idea for those of us who figured out how to install it on our myspace pages long ago…..
