Not sure if this is the right area, if not please move.

Anyways, I was wondering if there was a free program out there that can help track clicks off ads. I have the funds now to advertise my blog and I am trying to keep track of my ads so I can see how well their doing. Anyone know of a program I can use that is free?

Thanks

You should consider Google Analytics for click tracking. For more information follow the below url:

But, doesn't that only track people clicking links on your site? I mean I have my ad or text ad on someone elses site and I want to track the amount of clicks it gets so I know their site is worth advertising on.

There is no tool that will tell us the exact information about someones website. You have to trust on third party resources like alexa, or seomoz tools to figure out whether the site is worth to pay for advertising or not.

google analytic's does help same with google notifications and I do really like google adwords. It gives a great break down of who is looking at you, cost etc.

In my opinion you can use Google webmaster tool and Google analytics for tracking links.

romes -

At the end of the day, the return on investment you get on your advertising is what tells you if a site is worth advertising on or not. Google Analytics is a great tool as some have pointed out. If you setup campaign tracking URLs using the Google URL Builder, and setup Ecommerce tracking on your Google Analytics account, you'll be able to determine the following (and more):

1. How many clicks XYZ advertisement sent you
2. How many sales XYZ advertisement generated

Compare that with your other campaigns, and your finances to know if you should continue advertising there. I'd definitely suggest knowing how much you want to spend per sale to get new clients. Expect to pay at least 2 months revenue per sale.
