Tracking article views

 6:23 pm on Mar 16, 2011 (gmt 0)

I'm making available articles on third party websites. What's the best way for me to track views of the article?

Would I just add a tracking pixel, and moniter the log files? Or is there a better way of doing this? (the publishers will be cooperating,so I can add a pixel or html if necessary.)

Sorry for the delay in replying - but as no-one else has stepped in - I would go for a 1 pixel gif calling (if you are not using an analytics package) a gif on a specific URL that is not going to be accessed by any spider or human. That way you can easily see through log files if the gif has been called and, from the URL, see which article has been viewed. Of course, if you are using an analytics package it should be simple to track through a pixel call.
