[Pro] link click counter, which method or service?

Hi everybody - i am looking for a method in which the amount of clicks on a link (to an external website) in a FWdocument are somehow counted.

I am looking for a method or service, either onpage or an external service. (German preferred but not necessary).

Any ideas are most welcome, all the best - Hanna

Hi everybody, I am afraid the service is not what I am looking for. (or my english is to poor) I am looking for a counter, which can count special links on my clients website to external (!) websites. She likes know the number of clicks for each link to tell the other websiteowner: “Hey I do some advertising for you and I have this amount of click to your website. What can you offer me for this?”

Does that make sense now?
All the best, Hanna

I think there is some way to configure Google Analytics so it will
capture these links out for you, you might have a look around their
site and see what they recommend.

Otherwise, you will need to do something like a referral link on your
site, so the link gets captured by your server’s logs. You make a link
like this:

counter.php?link=www.example.com

…and then counter.php would be a simple script like this:

<?php
if(!empty($_GET['link'])) $link = trim(strip_tags($_GET['link']));
if(!empty($link)) {
	header('Location: http://' . $link);
	exit;
}else{
	header('Location: http://yourserver.com');
	exit;
}
?>

Your server’s analytics software would need to be checked to ensure
that it is capturing the Query String (everything after the ?) of the
URL, or you would need to check that Google is doing that for you if
you use their service.
