    You can check your log files. You can also use one of the many website tracking services available. Typically you sign up for an account and they give you some code to embed into your site which they use to track your visitors.

    Of course that relies on your visitors being prepared to let you know where they came from since the referrer field in the headers can be easily disabled in most firewalls and browsers.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
