No, I’m not talking about the Flux Capacitor , but the Link Conductor! Great Scott! ;)
So what is then? Well.. you may have noticed that MS have links that look like this “http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=XXXXXX” right?
Well the Link Conductor does exactly that and some more! Here is small snippet of Daniel’s post :
We have also included a basic statistics list that tracks every click we get, and as a bonus, who the referrer was was, so you can see just who is giving you the “link love”.
The Link Conductor List
1) After clicking on the “Link Conductor” link in Site Settings you will be taken to the “Link Conductor” list.
2) As described in the list description area, this is the list where you can define and manage any redirects for this Site (sometimes called a Web). It also describes the URL which will provide the redirect, in the format http://<Your Site URL>/go.aspx?<Category>=<Action>.
1) As I mentioned we have also included some really basic statistics. Returning to the sites “Site Settings” page, click on the “Link Conductor Statistics” link.
Notice that there is already an entry? This was created when I tested the link I created above.
2) Like I said, it is a very basic statistic, but we have included a couple of views which make it a little more interesting, for example the “By Referrer” view:
Its a quick an easy way of keeping track of who is sending you the link love!
