Tracking outgoing links with reports - looking for software

 8:11 pm on Feb 29, 2012 (gmt 0)


A customer of mine has a big dental site, where dentists, by paying a membership fee, have a profile and a link to their sites.

I would like to track how many visitors each dentists get. Therefore, I am looking for a software which counts the clicks and does some basic reporting.

Another idea is to use Google Analytics and track Events to measure the outgoing links but I won't see how many new visitors each dentist received.

Any tips.

If you know a little of js you could set it up yourself. Just hook the links for the click event and record the clicked URLs in the database using ajax.

Do you mean visits originating at the central site, as opposed to "cold" visits going directly to the individual dentist's site? Or both? They're different things, trackable in different ways.

Are the other dentists' sites on pages within the originating domain, or do they have domains of their own? Again, different ways of tracking.

There are several O/S php tracking programmes available. Quite easy to implement.

I just want to track the visitors, on this dental information platform/site, who click on links of dentist within the site.

This is a huge site with thousands of sites informing public re. dental care and treatment. Dentist pay a monthly fee to become a "recommended dentist". We would like to be able to tell "Dentist A", that we sent 200 visitors to his site last month.


can you recommend any opensource php tracking programs.

It's a long time since I found and used one. I believe I searched at sourceforge.net, I remember there were several to choose from 4 or 5 years ago.
