I am not to sure if this is the correct section to post this question, so I am mistaken, please direct me to correct place.
I have an app and would like to track the number of downloads made from my website.
Currently it works like so:
1. User opens specific URL
2. Script enters info into database
3. User gets directed to Jad file.
The problem is that a majority of the download count are being registered twice. They usually differ between 4-30sec, but the OS, ip and useragent are all the same. Another thing, the referring link is different.
Is there something I am missing? I have checked and rechecked my code as well as added a session to prevent this, but it is still occuring.
After a installation is successful, does the browser send the user back to the page? if so maybe that is why it is registering twice? if i added a cookie, will that prevent this problem? Or maybe my whole process is wrong and there is a better way to track downloads.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
