The click tracker works in 2 modes:
1. Scans posts and rewrites them to include a tracking element
2. Enables users to create stand alone trackable links that can be embedded in posts or offsite.

There is advanced reporting for viewing the click statistics. Reports include:
1. Top Referrers of clicks. Helps to coorelate where the popular links are at 🙂
2. Individual clicks.
3. Clicks by day.
4. Clicks by hour.
5. Graphs and charts per link and globally.
6. Admin dashboard widget.

The click tracker works in 2 modes:
1. Scans posts and rewrites them to include a tracking element
2. Enables users to create stand alone trackable links that can be embedded in posts or offsite.

Links that are included in posts should contain a title paramater in the href to have the reference name
be automatically created. Ex:
<a href="http://url.com" title="Link Title">link copy</a>

Links without a title attribute will have the name parsed through the wrapped text (if that fails default name is used (No Name Given)).

You can also create standalone links using the Link Manager to embed in external websites.
