    1. What are Exit stats? - Top

    SexList Exit stats were developed for you to track where surfers are going when leaving your site.


    It is crucial for any webmaster to know exactly which links are being clicked on throughout their site, especially those links that lead to sites other than their own.


    Knowing where surfers are going after they hit your site has always been highly desired data previously unavailabe to the majority of adult webmasters. This information is finally available with SexList Exit stats.


    Our stats provide detailed data on the number of total and unique clicks on each exit link of your site, in real-time, in daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly form. - Updated: September 23, 1999

    4. How do I configure my pages for Exit stats? - Top

    The Exit stats configuration process was built to make the process of adding Exit stats to your site as easy and error-free as possible. On the main menu of the configuration form, you will see three options to choose from: Manual, Interactive, and Automatic modes.
    You can choose from any one of these modes, and you can repeat the configuration process using a different mode as many times as you wish.

    Setting up Exit stats requires you to edit some HTML on your site's page(s). For each exit link on your site that you want statistics on, you will need to edit the URL. For example,
    you have a link that leads to:

    http://www.someothersite.com

    The HTML for this link on your page contains an tag with an HREF value containing the URL of the site above. The URL inside the HREF="..." statement is what will require editing.

    7. How do I use Automatic Mode configuration? - Top

    Automatic Mode is used in these cases:

    • There are many links on one page that you want tracked.

    • You are not familiar with HTML, and do not want to screw up your page by trying to edit it.



    Follow these instructions for Automatic Mode configuration:

    1. Enter the URL of the page that contains exit links to track.
    2. Check the box next to each link that you want to track.
    3. Cut & paste all the text in the text area into a new test page on your site.
    4. Preview the test page to make sure there were no errors.
    5. Replace the current page with the test page.

    Warning!

    If you are on a Free Host, you must remove the standard header and footer HTML from your test page before making it live, otherwise the page will contain 2 instances of the header and footer sections that the Free Host automatically inserts into your page when uploading to their server!

    8. I am using a commercial HTML editor. Will this screw up my Exit tracking code? - Top

    It may! If you use a commercial HTML editor application like Microsoft FrontPage or Adobe PageMill, you should make sure that the code that is displayed for you to cut & paste into your page matches what appears on your page inside the HTML editor. This is especially important when you use Automatic Mode configuration, since that option requires you to replace all the HTML for a page with the HTML generated by SexList.
