    Hi HotJoint,

    Ad Injection does not collect stats for your ads. Almost all ad providers (AdSense, ClickBank, CJ, TradeDoubler, etc) will provide statistics from within their own ad interfaces.

    The ad provider is in a much better position to collect accurate ad impression/click statistics than the Ad Injection plugin is.

    I see the role of Ad Injection as being to insert the adverts, not to track the adverts, so ad tracking is not something that I am likely to add to the plugin.

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah but try to imagine if you are in the position of selling ads, maybe your clients wants to track their stats like impressions and clics.

    I think this is a very important feauture every ad plugin must to have. But thats just me.

    Hi HotJoint, I can see that for your case it would be very useful. It sounds like you won't be able to use Ad Injection for what you want unless you use some other method of click tracking.

    Ad Injection is probably more for people who are using 3rd party ads (e.g. AdSense) rather than publishers who are directly selling ads.

    Perhaps you can track clicks by directing the outgoing requests to another script?

    Its a great idea indeed. Well maybe for upcoming versions you can consider to add this clic and impression tracking feauture.

    Thanx for your time
