Are you tired of promoting your site and your affiliate
programs and not knowing what's working and what's not?
If your web host offers stats that at least let you know
what page's people are going to. This will work for you.
Below you will find a simple HTML code to use to make
your own redirect pages. You can use it for pages on your
site and use a different name for them.
Say the URL to the page you want to advertise in a particular
eZine or classified is http://www.yourdomain.com/products.html
put this link in the HTML code below in this area of the code.
Now name it with a different name such as product2.html
and save it to your web site files. Next upload this page
to your site.
Now when you place your ad list the URL in it as:
This URL will redirect to:
http://www.yourdomain.com/products.html but will show in
your stats as: http://www.yourdomain.com/products2.html
When you check your stats you will be able to see exactly
how many hits you received from the eZine or classified or
wherever you placed your ads. You can also do this with
your affiliate programs following the same instructions as
above. This will also make your affiliate links look better.
To keep track of your advertising, here is an example of
a file to set up. Say you want to use the same ad and test
several different ways to promote it. Simply make your
file like this.
1. Yahoo ads
the redirect page file will be named
and you will list it in your ad as:
2. eZine Number 1
3. eZine Number 2
Get the Idea? Just continue making and uploading these
redirect pages to your site until you have all on your
Also on each redirect page be sure to list your title,
description and keywords. If your site is spidered by
search engines, they will very often pick these-up.
Here is the code.

links to make sure they are working before you place your ads.
