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!

I've been working on creating outbound links for some of my hubs in my second week here at HP. I know the basics of SEO and I know why this is important. I thought it might be nice to share some tips for making the outbound links work for us. I don't think I personally have enough information here...

"John Mueller said that external links, links on your web site that point to outside web sites (or outbound links) are not a ranking signal. Just to be clear, links are a ranking factor - but you linking out to other sites doesn't help you rank better. He said the content you use for the link...

I am not very intelligent when it comes to traffic stats, so sue me..lolWhy is Google Analytics stats more than the HP stats for the same period? Before you assume that Google logs my visits to my hubs, let me clarify that I have hardly been visiting my own hubs. I have an excess of 400+ visitors...
