GoTo redirect wordpress plugin

GoTo Redirect

I needed a very simple link hits tracking done on a WordPress site and an even simpler way to let my client manage and view these links and hits, Now i did find some nice and well coded plugins but most of them were a major over kill for this kind of simple hits only tracking, So i just created this new plugin
GoTo Redirect.
