WordPress Visit Counter

Problem
You have a wordpress blog (or several) and you want to know the (total) number of visitors. How to nail it?

Solution
Here is a simple script that scrapes the essential parts from a webpage.

Sample output:

https://pythonadventures.wordpress.com       29,822
http://ubuntuincident.wordpress.com        100,639
--------------------------------------------------
Total number of visits: 130,461!

This idea was inspired by vanity.
