    I have a few blogs/sites not all the same host

    is there a hit counter (or similar) that I can upload and see where
    my hits are coming from in terms of the "referrer"?

    so I can determine which ad or article or source they
    are coming from?

    finances don't allow me to spend a cent at this time

    even if I have to upload to each separately and log into
    different accts to be able to see where my hits come
    from I don't mind, especially since I'm hoping to find a free solution

    any direction would be appreciated!!

    Home Page:
    You could use google analytics or pikwik (you need to install it on your server but you can track multiple sites with one instance)

    Or you can simply do this in php:
    PHP:
    $referer $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER']
    and then store the value of $referer in database or something.

    thank you flapjack,

    I have gotten "statcounter" to work
    so it seems fine and I can see multi sites in a single view!

    so that seems like it will work for now!!
