    PHP, how to track ref= info coming into site?


    Is there a script(PHP) out there that will help me track the traffic being referred via Adwords and Overture?

    I know if I get a new customer from one of these links and I also know if the place an order.

    But I would like to know how much traffic is coming from the link. Adwords & Overture are supposed to track this, but I would like my own indicator.

    Thanks for any info

    $REFERRER gets the referring link (or site, by what link the customer arrived to your site).

    Or you could just look at your log files. Log files, if configured to do so, contain the referrer. So when anyone goes to your site from clicking on a Adwords or whatever, it is put into the log, and you can analyze the data when needed.
