How to track outbound links

I want to be able to track clicks on outbound links on my site for each page. I can currently see this from the main dashboard (expanding Visitors and clicking Outbound Links) but not sure how I parse the data by page.

Thank you!

Links -> Outbound report.

Thanks but that doesn't allow you to see which page the outbound links originated from. I want to know for each page which outbound links my visitors are clicking on.

Hmm okay but I assumed Clicky was pretty powerful and this seems like an easy enough task.

One way is to format your own report using the 'links-outbound' API call on this page:

Thank you sir. I think I'm onto something with the API.

If anyone else is struggling with this, here's what I did:[pageurl]&segments=links-outbound&output=xml

Turns out I'm getting some strange results using the above. It includes links that are not even on the page specified. Anyone know why?
