Link Download Tracker?
A link or download tracker (as the name suggests) is a counter that keeps track of your links and downloads! This is usually achieved by inserting some dynamic code into the HTTP link on your webpage and would normally be used for something you wish to keep track of like:
How many hits or click-through you are sending to another site or how many files are being downloaded from your site.
This becomes particularly useful for affiliates that monitor to receive funds from sending traffic to another site or need to monitor the popularity of a particular site somewhere else on the Internet.
You cannot always put a counter on someone else's site so a link tracker is the next best thing and is completely different from a webpage counter although essentially they do the same job.
