    Thanks Mad4 - I actually just re-coded the WordPress functions to add the onclick, but was looking for something less obtrusive.

    I finally got the onclick function to work. Yippee and thank you Mad4! Now I have a question about fine tuning this. Suppose I have an outgoing link to the same client on several pages of my site and I wanted to show how many clicks he received from each individual page of my site that he is on, would I do it like this:

    <a href="http://www.client.com" onClick="javascript:urchinTracker ('/outgoing/pagename/client);">www.client.com</a>

    Also having just got this to work I am unsure about the data received. Within my outgoing/clientname record I have 2 pageviews and 1 unique pageview. Would this mean that one visitor clicked on this client's link twice? :confused:

    Sorry, very new to all this. So to make sure, this is how the code should look?

    <a href="http://www.site.com/redirect.php" target="_new" rel="nofollow" onClick="javascript:urchinTracker ('/visit/redirect.php');">Visit Site</a>
    Code (markup):
    I use WP and have the analytics installed through Yoast plugin. Is there anything else i need to do besides that code?

    Last, where exactly i see the results?

    Thank you
