For a long time we’ve wanted to know what people are clicking on, which links are most popular, and I’ve just written a script that is the first step to allow us to do this.
What it does is send anyone clicking on a link on LabourStart through a script called ‘redirect.php’ — and this allows us to count.
The problem is, we did this once before, a couple of years ago, and certain URLs did not work well with it.
So what I’ve done is create a trial page here which runs this redirect function.
I need your help to test this.
Please use this as your LabourStart home page in English for the next few days. Click on links. Let me know if anything bad happens.
If it all works OK, this will become our new home page in English and we can begin tracking what our visitors click on.
