Has there been any plan to add outbound link tracking as described in Google analytics, specifically on affiliate links like Amazon.
I'm seeing much more money generaed by Amazon sales than Adsense, and I'd like to be able to track which hubs are generating the traffic so I can focus my external link building and traffic generation on them.
While I know we can't track all the way to a completed sale, at least knowing where the click thoughs came from would be of value.
More on this on the Analytics help page

I use that on some of my sites and it's a great help.
