    I'm looking for an easy way to find out if viewers are coming to me from a specific link on a specific site. Assume I have rights to add code to that link if necessary. Thanks.

    Asign each site a tracking number. Then when you give them the code add it to the end of your url like so, some.domain.com/index.html?123. That way each individual site has its own built in tracking code. Your referrer logs will keep track of the individual ids for you.

    You can also give each visitor a number, then add (when they visit the site) the referer in a database (include the resolution, hostname, ip address, browser version etc.) and you can search in your database to a number, then you see the other things. You can also sort things (from which sites the most visitors came) and so on.

    I've been working on something like that (but it doesn't work at this time): www.antoniswebmedia.com

    If you like you can also use HTTP_REFERER,
