How To Track Myspace Music/Band Pages

First off, make sure you select "MySpaceTrackers" from the "Generate HTML" menu when starting the code generator. Once you have created your counter code, there are several ways you can install a counter on your MySpace page. I'm giving you the "easy" way here.

If you have a Band/Musican page:
  1. Log in to your MySpace account
  2. Click "Edit Profile"
  3. Click "Band Details"
  4. Find the "Bio" box
  5. Click the edit link for that box
  6. Copy and paste your counter code into this box
  7. Preview and save the "Bio" section
  8. Refresh your dashboard page to ensure that your new counter has in your account
That should be all there is to it. Just keep in mind that MySpace may not update your account page right away (although it probably will). Since MySpace doesn't explicitly support web counters, this is mostly a "workaround" solution, but it works.

Please keep in mind that MySpace bans JavaScript, so the counter is a pure HTML counter. It will work very well, but it won't have all of the info that a JavaScript counter has. Most notably, you won't get information on referring URLs.
