Track Clicks of an Image?

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.thedesignemotive.com

Hi everyone,

On my website I have 'spots' which I want to eventually use to sell to advertisers, which are images in a gallery and inserted into my website through Gallery blocks. This way I can control the creative for my website, and there aren't any ugly Google Ads on my site.

Right now I don't have any advertisers on board, so instead I'm using these spots to promote things like my YouTube channel, new articles, etc. I want to figure out how to track the number of clicks each banner and sidebar 'ad' gets, and want to keep it as in-house as possible. I know I could sign up to a service that can track the clicks, but I want to see how I could do it natively. I tried doing URL redirects, so that the image clickthrough URL is to a page like /banner-a-track-clickthrough and then I redirect that URL to the true URL.. However that involves 'killing' the initial page and I can't see it /banner-a-track-clickthrough on my Google Analytics.

Does anyone have any ideas? Worst case scenario, I will consider services that can track the clicks, so if you do have recommendations, please let me know.
