Tracking People FAQ

I am willing to write up a FAQ that answers the question "How do I track visitors to my journal?" (or something similar, name ideas are welcome). I just want to make sure that I have all of the info needed...let me know what else I should put in it:

1. Info about adding a counter (link to howto tutorial about it)
2. Brief description of what an IP address is, and tracking IPs with comments
3. Note that counters with Javascript, etc. don't work in LiveJournal
4. You need to use a third-party counter to track actual IP hits to your journal, LJ doesn't do that
5. Maybe something about how LJ is planning to allow paid journals to track visitors with some LJ tool eventually?

Any other ideas?
