Any tracking software that you have used and liked? I use tracking202 for my traffic and conversions. I find that it gets the job done but I am always looking for anything that might work better as I find that tracking is the most important aspect of online marketing. I also us WP Stats on all my wordpress sites.

Wow it looks to me you're investing a lot of money with use of the above mentioned commercial platform.... The way I do it does not cost anything except for web hosting... I use [URLnf="http://yourls.org/"]YOURLS [/URLnf]for tracking links - which is free open source tool similar to bitly, tinyurl etc... With regards to tracking user behaviour on my website its a combination of G's analytics and some self coded PHP... With self coded solution you can do things like:

1) Set session variables
2) Read in get URL variables
3) Apply variables to user action e.g. hidden field on optin form or buy now button...

That way I can accurately track what outside resources is bringing in traffic which converts.... e.g. person clicks on an ad then buys the product and from that you can ascertain which ad is the best...

I hope that helps!

You can give ClickMeter a try: it allows link cloaking. ClickMeter also provide a referral wiping option as well as, of course, a detailed counter for the clicks. You can use it for free or upgrade to the premium versions. That is what have been using for a while now and is very accurate compared to tracking202.

As an update I've setup a step by step guide for tracking links within the forum blog entry here. It covers how to install and setup YOURLS. Let me know if you have any questions....
