I think they look pretty professional , was thinking about putting one on my tailgate. If you don't know what they are, you scan them with a smart phone app and it's a direct link to your website, business info etc. I already put them on the back side of my biz card but I wanted to get other opinions.

I'd be interested in knowing that too. Also, how big does it need to be and how important do you feel such codes are versus having your phone number and email address?

Do a large percentage of your customer base understand how to scan codes like that? Also, how would they do it? Would you have to be parked and they would walk up to scan it?

I dont think you can track the hits you get off of them. its more or less a fancy website URL.

Ok step one install Google Analytics on your site, this should not be difficult as if your using a mobile site you have a cms like Wordpress or Joomla anyway that will have a plugin for this. http://www.google.com/analytics/

Step two create a campaign in google analytics, this will give you a custom URL that analytics will track when they use it.

Step 3 use https://bitly.com/ to shorten your URL for qr code generation.

Step 4 Generate a QR code using your fav QR code generator

Step 5 edit the QR code as much as possible using a graphics editor to possibly put in a logo.

step 6 test it and enjoy your work
