Outbound Clicks Easy Way to track ibQuixote msg:3688826 8:36 pm on Jul 2, 2008 (gmt 0) Im sure this is an old question by now, but I still couldn't find an answer. Anyway, here goes:
Is there and easy non technical way to know which outbound text links on my site are being clicked?

>> non technical way
hehe;) I've always written up a quick script in PHP that kept track of outbound links. I'm sure you can find something already written for you, though, but this is pretty much how it's done.

there is supposed to be a new feature in Google Analytics to do this (supposedly this is still in Beta) - then again, there are lots of descriptions on how to do it with the current version that involves putting the JS high on the page and tracking "onclick" type actions.

I found this to be very easy to implement for Google Analytics...
Add this and it works right away. Then go into google analytics and filter your top content pages to show only those in the "outgoing" directory to see the results.
