|....I've been looking for a 'click
counting' script for months. Your LnkInLite is perfect (even I could install it!) I had
never seen a 'makedir' file like yours, sure made the installation easy. Great looking
admin interface also. I'll be adding a couple of links to your pages later. Thanks again,

- restricted on-site link click counting,
- off-site (in to) click counting,
- file DOWNLOADS click counting,
- E-Mail imbedded Promo click counting - PC or web based,
- hidden destination links / files,
- since late '98 and still very popular!

will avoid any licensing problems which may arise from the mySQL sellout (2010).

LnkinLite Unix Perl 5 CGI is a versatile free-to-use Hyperlink usage counter and redirect script. Simple Link
Names and URLs added to the data file can also be edited via the Admin Page. The called script updates the
counts and then redirects to the required URL.
Any time you need to add one of the links
to your pages, or send a URL copy to another site, or add a new temporary promo link to any e-mail texts, admin will generate the correct hyperlink HTML and E-mail Text tags for a simple copy and paste action by you in to the relevant file.
If you want a complex "affiliate" program
this is NOT for you!
If you want a logging program this is NOT for you ( severlogs / site counters are for that! ).
But if you want to efficiently track by simple count totals which hyperlinks within your site are most
commonly used and which "exit" links are most popular then LnkinLite IS for you.... without process slowing logging of "gimmick" data real webmasters know they already receive by other means.
LnkinLite even safely counts external link URLs supplied to other sites AND protects your local links.
LnkinLite is also an excellant tool for adding "promo response checking" to ANY e-mailed
text URLs, and counting DOWNLOADS!
| LnkinLite is popular amongst commercial and business sites; typical feedback is reported by Clint Krismer
"LnkinLite ....fills a significant void in our ability to track link
The actual redirect URL is hidden, only representative names are used!
Individual links can be access-blocked from remote copies of your pages or a browser command line ( note v2.71 bug fix ).
No program and site bloating of useless log info experienced webmasters know they already obtain elsewhere - simple, fast, efficient.
We have viewed several client admin pages listing many hundreds of counted links on single web pages.
LnkinLite will even work from a JS drop menu link list, but our JumpNcount program is written as a separate URL click counting drop-menu-redirect usage recorder.
E-Lists and ListMerge v2.3 - early 2002 - link directly to LnkinLite admin for quick generate/copy/paste of named counted email promo links in sent emails. But as a stand alone efficient simple program LnkinLite Perl CGI can be used for many site link requirements.
One simple program
LnkinLite can be used to count links TO your site as well as hyperlinks
within your site, similar to affiliate linking but without account management. If another site is going to link to yours, create and send them a unique <a href... tag.

Dear Mr Woolley, I installed your program and: it's great, easy
and very effective! My site is a lexicon with about 750 links and growing
which I changed to Lnkinlte. Now I can see how often visitors use my
That's good information! Regards, Thomas Eicker
The counting and
redirecting of links into your site from other sites is handled easily by
LnkinLite, and includes an attractive totals viewer and link adding/editing page accessed by password; also ideal for checking banner ad click-throughs, reciprocal links from
other sites etc.
add links to your mail-outs! - if using "Listmerge" to
bulk mail-out to E-Lists lists (new window samples), then by also creating named
links via the LnkinLite program the link code is generated suitable
for including it in the ListMerge saved mailing texts for each list (or any other similar PC / Browser mail merging program). You
can then have a "response check" by counting the response
success rate for any number of return or promo links included
in mail-outs - see what works, what needs changing next time, etc.
