Are you using MVC ? It can be done easily with that.

no i am not using MVC

See there no way to track that.
You can do a trick.
1. First attach a query string with the link
2. Then redirect to your page & when user click that link it should redirect tot your page
& in code level check the query string & redirect automatically to desire link.

Click On Link---->Your own page---> Desire webpage (Say Google)

cool it s working thank u Mukesh
If you want to execute server code upon a click in a link, then you should use the ASP.NET control <asp:LinkButton>
XML
if it is LinkButton you can do it inside onclick event

<asp:LinkButton ID="MyLnkButton" runat="server" onClick="MyLnkButton_Click" Text="Click Me!">

protected void MyLnkButton_Click(Object sender,EventArgs e)
{
   Response.Redirect("Default.aspx");
}

Do you have any privilege to work on 3rd Party website?
Like in case you can create a web siervice, which is acknowledged when user visit to that site.

no i don't have privilege to work on 3rd Party website what i am making is an marketing engine
so email will be made by user he or she can add any link to any location i want to track how many users have clicked the link in the email so that i can show them in the report this person has clicked the link in the mail

Well if you user add a link to site you can track by solution 1.
Do you find issue on this?
surajemo 8-Jul-13 2:49am    
mukesh what i am making is an marketing engine so the user will be sending promotional email's to his customers so the user who is sending the mail will be adding links which goes to different websites i want to know has which customer has clicked the link
