Count clicks on a link

Post by marvaysCZ » Mon Oct 25, 2021 3:25 am

Hey you,

I’ve got a question about the possibility to count clicks when an user has clicked on a link.
Does anyone of you know how I can solve my problem?

Do you know of any extensions for joomla? I don't need to primarily measure all links on the web. Just some. I need it for better SEO when I do internal linking from currency and site text. To have feedback, which links are successful and which are less.

Best regards

The only internal to CMS core I can think of is the "hits" counter for menu items and/or articles. Not the same thing. Analytics would count link clicks (but for whole site).

Something like this perhaps (utilising Google analytics). https://www.joomlashack.com/blog/joomla ... on-clicks/

Ideal Related Extensions includes Link words. This does that, I have used it.
"Automatically creates links out of selected words in your Joomla! content articles. You can link specific words to Menu items, Articles or URLs. Each Word Linking rule can be assigned to specific menu items and have a limit"
The Joomla 4 version isnt ready yet (probably a month they say) however Joomla shouldnt be an issue.

Thanks for the information. But I don't see anything to do with my question.

Is the Banner Component/Module what you are looking for?

No.

For idea. I have an article on a website. There are three internal links to the article. One is from the menu, two are from other articles. I need to know from which links to article visitors come from. and such articles, categories, products I have hundreds.

Either it will measure automatically and everything. Or I enter measurements manually for certain links I need.

The result will be that I look at article "A" and see that I have 1500 visits from the menu link, 250 from article "B" and 10 from article "C".

You can get that information from the server logs.
