OK, I'm looking to add a simple Affiliates/link tracking system to 1.4.9.6. Here's what I had in mind, that I think is probably pretty simple:

A simple page, in the admin only. There is no customer-facing portion necessary. The page would be accessed under either Catalog > Affiliates or Reports > Affiliates in the admin panel, not sure which makes more sense...

The page would allow you to add an entry, by putting in an ID for the entry (which would be a website or person's name), and entering a specific link ending. For instance, you might fill in "partnersite1.com" and a link ending of "partnersite1".
It would then generate a unique page that is not indexed on the sitemap (say...yourstore.com/store/partnetsite1) and track the number of hits on that page.

On a second tab, it would allow you to see a list of the partners, and how many clicks each had received. There would also be an option to remove a partner from the list if needed, just like you can delete a customer.

Here is a rough mockup of what I am envisioning, showing both tabs of the page:

Anyone? I've only had one PM and it was not a serious inquiry on the job.
