I've written a simple redirect script in PHP that takes a resource ID and then redirects the user to the appropriate page.
The main motivation was if all of my links were to break because the service provider decided to disable them for whatever reason, I can update all links easily since they're in a single location.
Now that I actually have a redirect page up, I'm interested in knowing which resources are most popular.
I have looked at Google Analytics and it seems promising, but I am not sure how to set it up to capture what I want. My redirect page takes a set of parameters as such
I would like to keep track of each parameter (
id) and the values. How can I accomplish this? Will there be a problem if the page does not load up completely before my redirect script kicks in and sends them off?
