Sites showing "stats" are running older versions of b2evolution. In an effort to combat referer spam b2evolution removed publicly displayed stats. The idea being once the spammers realize there is no value in spamming a b2evo blog they will eventually go away.
If you want a public visitor counter then the method you are using obviously works. It would be possible I suppose to hack b2evolution to show you similar data, but if your stat counter is good for you then why go deeper?
