FAQAre hitcounters.net counters really FREE?
Yes, 100% free and you will never be charged. However, our counters come with a
tiny text advertisement below covering our bandwidth and server costs enabling
us to provide your counter free of charge. The text advertisement is so small,
you won’t even notice it, (NO UGLY BANNER AD)
A small text link, no more than 25-30 characters in a small font, will appear
directly under each counter. Our text links will always link to family friendly

In this case, we might have advertisers that will fit better in your hitcounter.
All of our advertisers are thoroughly reviewed before we sign them up and accept their websites. Also, after you click on "Get Counter Code" we will show you how your counter is exactly going to look. If you are unhappy with the text link, just go back and click on "Get Counter Code" once more and you will be given a new counter with a different advertisement. Repeat again is necessary.
We do not allow sites with illegal content or child pornography, we will refuse them so please do not ask.
