Ever wanted to track your traffic from your social media websites? Social media is probably the source of a large percentage of your website's traffic. Oddly enough, there aren't many tools you can use to track this traffic. To try and curb spam, most of the large social media websites will obscure your outbound links, effectively removing any embedded coding, such as one necessary for tracking. Luckily, QuickTagger has found a way to embed your codes without the risk of being stripped by your social media.
