Let's say you own website A which includes a link to website B.

How can you tag your links on A so that when a user clicks on them, the owner of B, by looking at his/her Google analytic data, can count how many links have come from A? Is this already done automatically, or can you add something to the link to hightlight this?


I tried google url builder and it seems to work.

<a href="https://siteb.com?ref=sitea">Click here for site B</a>

Something like that will do it
