Configuring Outbound to track /go/ style links

Hiya,

Can anyone help me tweak the Outbound plugin so that it can track my outbound links that are ‘cloaked’ using the internal /go/-style redirects that many folk use these days?

I’m on Wordpress and am using the Simple URL plugin. You give it an outbound link you want to cloak and it gives you a new URL to use in your content:

yoursite.com/go/name-of-link

Anyone clicking this is taken to the external destination but Outbound doesn’t track it, presumably because the redirect doesn’t explicitly carry a Mint tracking tag.

So can I set something up to track any clicks to the /go/ folder in Mint instead?

Cheers! Owen
