Link Tracker

Link Tracker Overview

Link tracker can be used to track URLs (how many clicks) for pages internally and externally. It has multiple uses including:

  • Use a pay-per-click advert to confirm the actual counts match the clicks recorded on the advertising site
  • Place external links to show the number of clicks coming from the external site
  • Place links in your site to see how many people click those links

How Link Tracker works

You can use a link tracker to count how many people click on any link.

  • In the admin module, you add the actual URL you want the visitor to take when they click on the link
  • Link Tracker will give you a new URL that you use instead
    1. Example: you want a link to
    2. The link tracker generated URL is, this is the link you put on the site
  • When a user clicks the link, Link Tracker counts the click and then redirects the person to the actual URL

    Allow Multiple Clicks
    • By default, whenever we detect a visitor clicking the same link multiple times, the system only counts a single 1 click to the link. This is to prevent spamming that leads to fake click numbers.
    • If you don't want this behaviour, you can check this checkbox = 'No'. The system will now count every single click even if from the same visitor
