I run a PDF magazine that contains paid advertising and I need to be able to track how many people click on the ads and visit my advertisers' websites. Any suggestion would be appreciated!

  • Are the links to advertiser sites inside PDFs?

Simply don't make your links advertiser1.com but instead use something like yourdomain.com/ad.php?redir=www.advertiser1.com then, have a simple ad.php (or whatever) script on your site which will increase view counter for given advertiser and then do a HTTP 301 redirect to site given as redir parameter.
