I have embedded a free visitor tracking software on my blog. This keeps me updated on the number of visitors to my blog each day and is updated every second. Even though i have never promoted my site yet i see many visitors.Are these visitors genuine or manipulated by the the owners of the software?

they are quite reliable hmm you haven't promote your blog i guess the views you are seeing is you itself enable don't track my own pageviews to solve this problem

Hehehe... one day I was wondering where all the visitors were coming from and as you said: it was me!! Make sure it is not tracking yourself :) I'm currently only using the standard tracker offered by blogger.com. I've seen some very nice ones that show a list with flags from where the visits are coming from but have not yet researched where to get one of these. What's the one you are using?

I think they are quiet reliable :). I just can't understand why should they bother to manipulate the number of visitors :p By the way, if you want to know about where your visitors come from in more details, you may try to install Feedjit - http://feedjit.com/
