    Add a unique tracking keyword to your individual urls and use Google Analytics:

    http:// your url here dot com?tracking-keyword

    To track outgoing links on your webpages use the following script format and Google Analytics:

    <a href="http:// yourwebsitehere dot com/" onClick="javascript:
    pageTracker._trackPageview('/outgoing/tracking-keyword);">anchor-text-here</a>

    Also, you can track downloads in Analytics:

    <a href="http:// yourwebsitehere dot com" onClick="javascript:urchinTracker ('/downloads/keywords-here'); ">

    In my Analytics, I had an outgoing affiliate link get over 100 clicks in a few days and it showed up under the Content Overiew as /outgoing/[tracking-keyword] with the correct amount of clicks.

    <a href="http:// yourwebsitehere dot com/" onClick="javascript: pageTracker._trackPageview '/outgoing/tracking-keyword);">anchor-text-here</a>

    You could always click the link yourself (if it's safe to do so) to test it.

    "outgoing" and "keyword" are just identifiers. I'm not sure what's going wrong. PM me an example of one of these links and I'll test it on one of my own sites.
