Clicker Counter allows you to track clicks on file extensions or classes. All clicks are logged and ordered by amount.
Visit the Settings and Maintenance tab and fill in one or both text fields. For example, if you want to track the global downloads of PDF files on your site, you need to enter
myclass. The plugin also allows for relationship attributes, such as
rel="external". For best results, only use one of the available options.
Clicker Counter intercepts clicks on various elements, set by jQuery selectors, and adds them to database. The plugin keeps an unlimited number of clicks statistics in the backend, and displays them based on element selection, file type and post/page type.
Comment Genius is a plugin which allows you to aggressively market your site by presenting a lightbox with Facebook Like/Share, Twitter Tweet, Google AdSense Ads and more to your visitors upon leaving a comment.
Comment Genius allows the user to create a customizable lightbox popup (width, height, properties), suitable for Facebook Like/Share, Twitter Tweet, Google AdSense Ads and more. The popup is a pure textarea, in order to allow for source code copy/paste and it supports HTML code for custom text content.
Some web sites or blogs present a landing popup with a “like or wait 30 seconds” behaviour. As this behaviour might drive the visitors away, Comment Genius will allow the visitors to browse the site, read articles and leave comments. Leaving a comment may be considered a successful conversion, so an unintrusive lightbox popup with a clickable ad or a Facebook Like button will seal the deal.

The plugin allows for total customization of forms, string translation for multilanguage WordPress web sites and category-based shortcodes.
