This is a tracking bug.....
Blake needs to have a web based program that allows him to pull data from
the web_track_urls table.
Requirements are not set in stone at this point. Let's work together to
My main comment is that we need to be able to track how many clicks came from
each link to a partner page from our site. So, for example, there are 6 links to
VMware's site on their product page; there should thus> be, in the report tool, 6
URL entries, and the clearer they can be the better. That is, if it's possible to
connect the link's text copy with the URL, so much the better.

> * change default year for end of search from 50 to 01
> * can the pulldown list of hosts be shorter? also, need to eliminate

> * maybe separate them into three categories - paid (the 20 sponsors we
> have) unpaid and miscellaneous?
> * also - can we make it searchable?
> * "execute" = "create report"
> * create monthly result option, eliminate "year" option for now
> * reverse the order of the reports so that it's monthly, weekly, daily,
> and make monthly report the default report option
> * make new row in results report with "Monthly (or weekly or daily, as
> appropriate) totals" row at bottom of page
> * by default results should group by day, not group by URL; first field
> in results should be date, then URL, then clicks
> * make it clear there are no reports prior to start date (July 8?)
> * VMware results - URL too long
> * "date" for year results is always 1/1/00?
> * change "hits" to 'Clicks"
> * search by date should be earliest first, latest at bottom most recent
> * add instruction "click on URL to see summary of all links to that URL"
