    If I correctly understood, you want to log each visit to your site, specifically the link that the visitor used to get to your website. Also, you want to log if the visitor clicked an external link in your website.

    The first can be achieved with the Referer http header.
    For example, if the visitor searched for your site in google, and then clicked the link in google, the referer will be something like:
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=your+site&more_things
    The second needs you to have some javascript logging each external link visit.

    I hope I got it correctly.

    Again, If I correctly understood, you want to know each link, server wide, that points to an external website.
    Maybe you can do that with mod_rewrite (apache module) and a redirector script. I mean, making a rewrite rule that rewrites each external link to something like:
    Code:
    http://www.yourserver.tld/redirector.php?=EXTERNAL_URL_HERE
    Then in the redirector script, you log each site. However, redirecting to the redirector script will break the original referer header, so external sites will only see that the referer script is linking to them, and not the real user site.
    So, you need javascript to make the visitor's browser go to your redirect scripts, that logs each external link, so at the same time the browser also opens the link.

    So: With mod_rewrite, you need to add some javascript code.
    With javascript, you need to make a XMLHttpRequest to your redirector script (in fact, just a logging script).

    Also, there should be a Wordpress plugin available that supports this, as an easier option.

    I thought CPANEL is able to track outgoing / incoming traffic?
