External Link Popularity is intended to be used for web directories. It uses the Voting API module to rank nodes that contain external links. Points are awarded when users follow the external link in the node. These points can be given a lifetime to limit the scope of the rankings: e.g. most popular today, weekly, etc. Each user's click is counted only once per voting period per node. The module also provides a block showing most popular nodes.

The implementation is done without redirection or altering the link markup, by using a background javascript call, so it is SEO friendly to the link recipient.

Recommended complimentary modules: Views, Actions, Voting Actions.
