Tracker that works when profile is private

What's the best  tracker that works when someone who is not your friend looks at your profile when its private, and has at least a semi accurate link/picture back to the person's profile?

There isn't one that will do what you are asking. The best you can get is an IP tracker like Mixmap or Trackspace, and ID the hits yourself. The code would have to be in your headline, and so it will pick up a lot of false hits from users going through the 'browse' feature if you are in the results.

I have mixmap in my profile and it works great. I put the same code in my headline yesterday, but it's not picking up anything. I'm trying from my work computer which does not have adblock but it doesn't track me. Do I need to use a second tracker code?

Make sure you are putting the code at the end of your headline.

Other than that, it should be working as far as I know.

Thanks, Pat. It is at the end of my headline. My headline is actually a graphic and it ended with .. I erased the .. and added my tracker code. Could that be the problem? Did I need the .. ? 

I checked to make sure none of the code got cut off....

I just checked out the MixMap 'create a tracker page', and the code they want you to put in the headline is slightly different than the one they want you to put into a profile.

The first thing you should do is make sure you are using 'Option 4b" on their list. If thats not the issue, sometimes wacky things happen; and the best thing to do is re-insert the code anyway. I would delete whatever is in the headline and start fresh. If that doesn't work, then I honestly have no idea... but keep us posted.

oooh devil, you are right! It says, "Note that Option 4b is the only option that will track all visitors to a private myspace profile" which is different from option 4a, the code I tried using.

And like Pat said, it needs to go at the end of the headline. 

I wonder if I will have two maps to view now that I have two tracker codes? I hope not...

I will try now and let you all know.

OK, the new code seems to be working fine. It tracked me 2 out of the 3 times I tried.

And it does give me 2 different maps to check, but since I nicknamed one my "headline map" I now can tell the difference between IP's who ARE my friends, and who are NOT. So it's a good thing.
