I am working on a website where users can post items. I would like to provide them a custom analytics for ther items. So that the item owner can figure out how many people visited their item. I did some research in Daniweb, most of suggestion were made about google analytics. I thought GA is for the website overall rather than to a individal items inside the website. I am looking for some suggestions regarding custom analytics. I am using php.

A simple way if you just want to collect a running count is to write back to a table stored in a database and store the value as an integer. When a user visits the item, increment the value by one.
