View Full Version : Tracking outbound links
06-08-2003, 12:57 AM
I did a search here and came up empty: Is anyone on here tracking their outbound links? If so, what are you using?
I would like a way to measure the amount of traffic I am generating for other sites.

I use a simple php script to track outbound links. They look like ../click.php?to=http://www.destinationunkown.com/
It uses MySQL on the back end and either inserts or updates the count based on whether or not the link exists already.
It's about 5 lines of code, and really works well. I'll post it here if anyone's interested.

Is there a way without MySQL support on the back end? I've always dismissed it as too difficult, but it would be an interesting feature if it didn't require too much overhead.
There are a variety of flat file-based hit counting scripts out there, such as Gossamer Threads' Links (not SQL) and LnkinLite.
