I am currently testing a new way to get your traffic to links posted on your Pligg install noticed better.
Google Analytics uses a UTM (Urchin Tracking Module) tag so users can add information to the end of their links so they know better where their traffic is coming from. This is typically used for tracking banner ads or text links, but it can be used for cases.
Why not add it the links added to your Pligg install?
To add it, simply open link_summary.tpl:
and change it to,
This will change the normal outbound link:
In the Analytic panel for that site, if they use Google, they will see your Pligg install listed as a traffic referral much easier.
I have only been using this method for a week, so I am not sure if it will help with getting more traffic or not, but I will do a followup post in a week or two.
What do you think of the idea?
