Track Clicks to Offsite Domains

You can track your visitors' clicks to offsite domains, or to any of your own domains where you cannot refer to your mbox.js.

You can also track revenue per offsite click.

Business Case

While viewing your Web site, some visitors click to a partner Web site. You want to track these clicks as a conversion event and see which experience leads to the most conversions.

Options

There are two solutions: the Redirector or the mboxTrackClickOffsite JavaScript function.

Option Pros Cons

Redirector

Easy to implement.

If Target servers are down (almost never happens) the user will not be able to click anywhere.

mboxTrackClickOffsite JavaScript function

Users will always reach the offsite destination even if Target servers are down (extremely rare).

Much more complicated script required.

There is a risk that the visitor will reach the destination before the click is tracked.
