counters are useless

you need a web log interpreter. You can get the logs from your host server

software needed ...

90% of hosting companies already have this available for you. Did you check with your host? That way you don't need to put a cheesy counter on the page (geocities pre-2000 anyone?), but you can give your client access to the real useful statistics from the backend.

If the host does not provide web stats, absolutely check out Google Analytics. I use it in addition to the server logs for all my website projects even.
