Some time ago I proposed this to ProZ support and the idea was accepted.
Currently I do notice some increase in the volume of job proposed but still not sure if the Text Ad is the reason.
I'd just like to know if other "Text Ad owners" are also interested in finding out the exact efficiency of their Ad.

Add a Site Meter counter to your profile May 16, 2004

Go to http://www.sitemeter.com/default.asp?action=manager&area=htmlcode&page=htmleditors and add the code including the JavaScript Site Meter to your profile.

When you click on your counter you'll go to a website where you can select Recent Visitors By Referrals.

"Site Meter JavaScript HTML
The "JavaScript" Site Meter is more difficult to add to a page (when using some HTML editors), but it allows you to track the original URL from which your visitors came before linking to your site. Try adding the javascript version to your site first, if you are unsuccessful then try adding the non-javascript version."

Regards,
Gerard

If I do understand correctly by "referrals" I will only be able to see the page from which I had a visitor.
The point is that the SAME page hosts one link to my profile from the list of freelancers (that appears when someone enters search criteria) as well as another link to my profile from my text ad.icon_smile.gif
And the counter I have on my page now already allows me to track pages, but not links from the same pages.

I am not familiar with JavaScript, so if I'm mistaken and it's possible to differentiate these two links, please correct me.

Is this what you want? May 16, 2004

Just went to your profile. It looks great and you translate twice as fast as I do...

My list of "referrers" looks like this:

Isn't that what you want?

P.S. I just read your question again. The answer is no. If the URL is the same your and my tracker can't tell the difference.

Text ad tracking on todo list May 18, 2004

Hello Nash,

Showing text ad tracking statistics is a good idea. It's on my todo list, but it may be a couple of months before I can get to it. Thanks for the suggestions.

Jason
