Allow Or Prevent Your Readers From Knowing Your Visitors

For some Bloggers, knowing who's reading the blog is as important as writing it in the first place. And some want to let everybody else know (or prevent everybody from knowing) who's reading the blog. The choice of allowing (or not) the readers to see who else is reading the blog can be as natural as writing it too.

Both SiteMeter and StatCounter provide this selection, with a varying amount of effort required to select what you want.

With SiteMeter, select "manager" at the top. From the manager menu, select "privacy level". You'll have 3 privacy levels, and you can choose any that fits your needs.

With StatCounter, go into Configure, then Install Code. You'll have to go through the Install Code sequence, make the appropriate changes, then retrieve the new code and install it on your blog.
