I had taken Eiji’s Footprint gadget as a base, and modified the logic for identifying the recent visitors.

This gadget doesn’t store the Timestamp of the visitors. Instead it keeps track of a number, which each recent visitor gets assigned (that is always higher than the second recent visitor who visited the site).

(The Timestamp tracking method fails in few cases, when the visitors have a wrong time in their Computers. And also in the cases when visitors come from different time zones.)

Please provide your valuable feedback/suggestion by commenting, which will be useful for improving the gadget.

    nice one. Liked it.

    Do you have anything, which logs all the visitors in to a text file or as a report ?

    What i mean is, suppose the reader don't want his/her name displayed as a recent visitor, and the blog owner wants to know who are the ppl visited – could we log all the vistor list, without publishing it in public ?

  • Karthik

    thanks.. it is possible to build something similar.. but somewhat difficult :)

    Não funcionou!
    Testei por uma semana e só rastreou minhas próprias visitas ao meu blog. Tive algumas visitas que até me deixaram mensagens e não apareceu no rastreamento desse gadget.

    It didn't work at my blog.
    I tried for a week and it just tracked the visits I have done myself to my blog. I had some visits that sent comments to my posts, but they didn't appear within this gadget.

    • Karthik

      Hey, It can count, only if the member has logged on to 'Google Friend Connect' on your site.

  • Vivek Mohan P
