Link Tracking

The Link Tracker tool allows you to track your advertising campaigns. You can set up the links you want to use and then, instead of linking directly, you use the tracking links WHMCS gives you. It tracks the number of clicks and conversions using a cookie and providing a way to analyze success for different promotions.

You can access this feature at Utilities > Link Tracking.

When a visitor clicks on a tracking link, WHMCS increments the count for that link by one and sets a cookie on the user’s computer to indicate that they used that link. The system only stores the latest link that they used, so a conversion (click) never counts more than once. The cookie lasts for three months: if a user places an order while that cookie is present on their computer, the conversion count for that link increases.

To do this:

  1. Click Add a New Link.
  2. Enter a name to identify the link.
  3. Enter the URL to forward the user to.
