change external links according to source of traffic

3 replies
I have a WP blog,
with affiliate links to amazon.

I am sending traffic to my blog from Facebook, Google, Bing and more,
But I don't know which traffic works better for me.

I can add parameter to the amazon link according to the traffic,
but is it possible to create a script or a wp plugin that can do that?

  • You may need a coder to do it but it is pretty simple actually to do that with a couple lines of code...

    All you need to do is look that the HTTP Referer (the site sending you the traffic), parse the url and save that result into a session or cookie. You can then put that value from the session/cookie into the extra parameter/sub id in the tracking url.

    Session would be the better route or you would need to make sure to set the cookie to expire it a suitable time frame if you think the same traffic may come from multiple sources.

    Feel free to PM me if you want more info.
