tracking external links - for you


Oh wow. The folks at either had the same idea (or used mine) and went all the way. They are offering a service that can track what people are clicking on oon your site and analyse those logs for you. Popularity etc. Looking at the JavaScript it's really the same basic concept: when a link is clicked, a request to a external image is created by changing the URL of an image element. Pressto we have an entry in a logfile we can analyse. By using all sorts of URL parameters we can pass along all sorts of interesting info too.
