I am trying to figure out if there is any free software, like a perl or php script (which generates logs) that I can put on individual pages of my site through which i can track which individual ads are getting the last click when the customer leaves my site. I basically wanted to track the performance of my individual ads and whether to scrap any ones that are useless.

Free and simple to use software is preferable but any tips for which i have to shell out bucks are also appreciated.

you could try something like [phpadsnew.com...]

I have heard good things about it, I installed one version myself and it was pretty simple.

You could also put one together all you need is a redirect/exit script that tracks clicks on a given ad and stores that data in a db. All your ads then use the exit script with a url or id tagged to the end. When someone clicks it counts the click and sends them off to the url.

thanks very much. I had been changing the ads on each page manually and was thinking about something dynamic and less painful. I read the description and it seems to be a good thing.
