With a particularly nifty tool called 'Embed code' (don't be scared, it's simply another Drag and Drop function), you can add live maps which record your visitor.
My favourite are these:
1. Flagcounter.com which records a number of hits (generously too!) and keeps count of how many flags you have. See the bottom of this blog!
2. http://feedjit.com/freeLiveTrafficFeed/ which tells you from where and when your last 10 visitors came. See my right toolbar!
3. http://www.revolvermaps.com/ which puts a small red dot on a revolving globe to show your hits.
All are great fun and dead easy to put on your site.
1. Simply click on the site you like (or do all three) and customise. There is then a button to Get code. It might look like the nonsense below:
<script src="http://jc.revolvermaps.com/2/2.js?i=240u66sj10u&m=0&s=130&c=ff0000&t=1" async="async"></script>
2. Copy these (I use CTRL A to make sure I scoop it all up!) and log in to your blog provider (Weebly etc.).
3. In Weebly, click drag the 'EMBED CODE' from the 'MORE' bar to where you want your map. Then, paste in the code and click away from it!
4. The 'widgit' then appears! Click publish and check it's on your site.
5. Enjoy it with the kids! There's so much you can do with it: Geography work, data handling etc.!
