WP-Click-Track WordPress Plugin

By Daniel Scocco

Did you ever want to be able to track the clicks on the links that you use inside posts and pages? If so, you should check the WP-Click-Track plugin. It comes with two different features:

1. The first one will scan all your posts and pages looking for links, and it will add a tracking code to each of them so that you will be able to track the clicks.

2. The second function can be used if you want to create an individual trackable link, for instance to use with sponsors or affiliates.

I was concerned that the plugin could change the structure of the links and mess up with the SEO, but Eric Lamb, the author told me that it only uses an “onclick” Ajax element to track the clicks.

Once you have the plugin running, you will be able to see a wide range of reports, including the top referrers, the number of clicks on each link, the most clicked links by day and hour and so on. It is worth a look.

    Hikaye,

    The incompatibility is with the Google Analytics WordPress plugin (GAWP); specifically a single setting within GAWP that allows for the tracking of links. Both plugins operate in a similar manner for tracking the clicks but with GAWP the tracking is an addon while wp-click-track is built specifically for this task.

    There is zero risk of adverse interaction for SEO or Analytics; wp-click-track could have anomolies in reporting if the GAWP setting for tracking links is enabled.

    If you have any issues please let me know and I’ll help work through them.

    I read in the docs that “Incompatibility with Google Analytics” what exactly does this mean? I don’t want to use this if it is bad for my SEO or Analytics. Can you clear this for me.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for letting your readers know about this plugin, I always wondered how many times a template from my site was downloaded.
    Hmmm, this should do the trick.

    Cheers,

    I’m going to give this a try. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this. It will be nice to have this information inside my site and not be going to another for tracking information. Thx.

    Very nice feature. I could see wanting to track all that information. Do paid for posts bloggers lose their ability to sell links?
