How much traffic am I giving other sites

In Google Analytics, I know which cites are referring me how many visitors.

But what about the other way around? can GA tell me how many visitors I am sending to a certain website that I am linking to? something like "Outgoing Traffic"?

Yes, you can tag outgoing links so they trigger an event which is recorded. There's multiple ways, including the usual redirect via a script.

Thanks for the reply. But I don't understand why this is such a hard thing to do like incoming traffic?

Incoming traffic information (such as location based on IP) comes from GA picking up information from the surfer's browser. As soon as you leave the tracked site you can't get that information unless you specifically set up an "event" to determine where someone has clicked through to from a link.

Can we do this using Web Trends too?
Can we track outgoing traffic in WebTrends? if yes, how?
