Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I'm looking for a way to track referrers for people who made purchases.
On one of my other sites, my dropoff page is "thanks.html" and I just do a search of the raw log files for "thanks.html" and backtrack via the IP address and find out how the person found me.
But on the first site I referred to, since the drop off page isn't on our server, I don't have any way to know whether a person just left the site or whether they clicked on a link to go to the order page.
I was thinking on each "add to cart" link, I could place a redirect to the shopping cart code (which has a redirect to the other server too!) and then track those individual pages and backtrack, but that will be very time consuming.
Any simpler ideas? (Other than switching from bCentral; we like their service and want to stay with them)
