    Question Problem with Google Analytics "Site Overlay"


    Basically, I'm trying to see what sites people goto when they exit my site. Since it's impossible to track direct links to external sites - I decided to use either a php or javascript redirect to the external sites. So if the external link is othersite.com, i make othersite.html or .php and in there i slam a js or php redirect. Now I need to somehow place the GA tracking code into othersite.html or othersite.php file and have it successfully count the hits to that file before redirecting.

    So far I have been un-successful I'd be grateful on ideas how to implement this in the best way.

    You want to know where other people go when they leave your site?

    Sounds a little intrusive.

    No I want to know how many people are leaving to what sites. Tracking outbound clicks. Nothing intrusive about that.
