Hi, I'm sorry if this has already been asked, but I feel like I'm going cross-eyed from combing through the official help pages on Google and the forums here.
I'm a newbie to Analytics and I think I've figured out the Bounce Rate stuff and all that, but what I'm wondering is, is there a way to see what outbound links visitors are clicking on my hubs? I've looked and looked and can't find anything obvious about this question, except a page on Google that seems to suggest I have to add a link tracking code to every individual outbound link I want to be able to track, which seems inconvenient.
Squidoo users, I'm looking for something like the Clickouts info on the Dashboard Stats->Traffic tab.
Can anyone clarify this issue for me, or point me to a link that can?
Thanks in advance!
Its hard to find for me too - I find mybloglog more useful for outbound links - tells u the exact google ad too. The free version is limited but OK for my use of it
If you find anything else on this though please send me a message, I would be interested. Good luck!
Lissie, thanks for the suggestion! I'll check that service out.
risend, alas, I am not nearly good enough at coding to do something like you suggest (CSS and PHP includes are about as fancy as I get without tutorials that are longer than the code) but that sounds like a very useful script and I will definitely keep an eye open to see if anyone else has done anything of the kind.
Marisa Wright, hee!
