counter click html

Hi

We have an html page, very simple, with 2 links.

We want to count the number of cliks of each link.

could you tell me how can we have that without a database ?

Thanks!

keep adding to the cookie value

<a href="javsacript:gotoURL('http://www.google.com')">Go to google and count the click</a>

<script>
function gotoURL(  url )
{
   var value = getCookie ("clickCounter");
   if ( value == null || value.length == 0 )
   {
         value =parseInt (value) + 1;
    }
    setCookie ("clickCounter", value);
    location.href = url;
}
</script>

without a database you will need to store a number in a file on server side.

But question is: do you have serverside? or just HTML?

Hello Bro!

For this you need server side script but sure you can by pass DB use by using FILE handling.

that will count only for every user separately and will disappear when cookie expires.

It will not count clicks overall users.

@workflow80 pay attention that this is not the answer that you were searching for.
