Conversion Tracking for Ad Network

I'm looking for a programmer to make a conversion tracker for a small ad agency of mine. Below is the current code we use, its written in PHP but it only works 40-50% of the time. I'm wondering if there's a different way to do it.

We've also tried tracking IP's the problem is server strain. If someone can come up with a better idea, please PM me with your msn/aim and payment details.

We've tried doing it by ip. The problem is that query's our DB every time someone signs up to some VERY large games. We need to find a different

solution that is not so server intensive.

$cokee="{$global_owner}x{$global_publisher}x{$banner['ad_id']}";

setcookie ("aygc",$cokee,time()+259200,"/",".[url removed, login to view]",false,false);

*/

//The following is the PHP page which is called at conversion

if($_COOKIE['aygc'])

{

$global_day = date("j");

$global_month = date("F");

$global_year = date("Y");

$global_ipaddress = ($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'])

? $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR']

: $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];

$detail = split("x", $_COOKIE['aygc']);

mysql_query("INSERT INTO conversions VALUES ('', unix_timestamp(),'$detail[0]', '$detail[1]', '$detail[2]', '$global_ipaddress')");

mysql_query("UPDATE system_daily SET conversions=conversions+1 WHERE ID={$detail[0]} AND pub_id={$detail[1]} AND day='$global_day' AND month='$global_month' AND year='$global_year' AND type='pub'");

mysql_query("UPDATE system_daily SET conversions=conversions+1 WHERE pub_id={$detail[2]} AND day='$global_day' AND month='$global_month' AND year='$global_year' AND type='ad'");

}

?>

Below is a URL of a software that has a conversion tracker built in. I want both options available to my advertisers. Pixel placing as well as img. I would perfer this to be written in javascript, although PHP is

fine providing it works correctly, and isn't a terrible strain on the server.

I would also like GEO tracking for conversions to be available in a separate script. It would reference a list of ips and list where the conversions are coming from.
