Add Tracking Tags
Tracking Tags help you analyze link performance from yet another angle, at another level of granularity. For example, use the tags "Facebook" and "Twitter" for the links you post to each, then compare your clicks, commissions, etc. between the two.
This can be used anyway you see fit. Leave a note for the rest of the team, or jot down something you don't want to forget.
