Just as an update to the post, you may want to check if the image is actually loading before using any of the methods above.

Some browsers might not load 0px/0px images, for example, and will affect stat accuracy.

It’s just pushed out of the screen.
You would be surprised about how often this technique is used for different reasons 😉

The “Absolute Positioning” method worked perfectly for me. The other methods didn’t work for me because it caused the background color to show after the footer bar.

So what’s really happening with the “Absolute Positioning” method? Where did the smilely face actually go? LOL…

My problem with it is that I installed it on a friend’s blogger and it inserted itself right after the footer image thus there’s a white space beneath the footer and it doesn’t look appealing @ all 🙁
