Hello.

I'm trying to find out if there is a way of using clickTag and Google Analytics to track outgoing banner clicks. clickTag code:

on (release) {
  if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
    getURL(clickTAG);
  }
}

Maybe someone can tell me whether the following would work:

on (release) {
  if (clickTAG.substr(0,5) == "http:") {
    getURL("javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/somebannerad');");
    getURL(clickTAG);
  }
}

but I would ideally like a solution that worked with the standard clickTag code and didn't involve changing any code in the flash file. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks
