The collected information is sent to a PHP script that uses the class to record the information on a MySQL database for posterior statistical processing.

The class can keep track of unique visitors using PHP sessions. It also records the information about the browsers that are used and referral page URL.

It also keeps track of the links that are clicked including the URL and the text of the link. Clicks on ads from Google AdSense and Yahoo Publisher Network are recorded in a separate table.

There are many solutions that provide metrics about the audience of a site that give all sorts of information.

However, one detail that often is not provided is which links the users are clicking when they leave your site to visit another.

This package implements a solution that can provide the information about user clicks.

It may be particularly useful when you want to track the links that the users clicked on advertising placed for instance by Google AdSense or Yahoo Publisher Network.
