There are a couple of ways you can find the statistics for a specific link:

  1. Find the link ID, or
  2. Go to the statistics for that guide and look at the links area.

Finding the Link ID

finding the link id

  1. Edit the guide that has the link.
  2. Hover your mouse over the edit icon for the link.
  3. Write down the number that appears in the tooltip.
  4. Once you have that, go to the statistics area, click the Links tab, and enter that link id.

Using the Statistics Area

  1. From your Dashboard, click Statistics, then go to the Guides tab and select the guide that has the link.
    If editing the guide, go to Guide Settings > View Usage Statistics.
  2. If you'd like, enter a date range. The default date range is the past week.
  3. Click Links just below the chart.
    You'll see all of the links on that guide, clicks in the selected timeframe, and total clicks since you added the link, or 7/1/2012, depending on how long the link has been in the guide.
  4. If you'd like more details about statistics for a particular link, click the ID.
