You can either do it yourself using a link tracking database, or use something like Google Analytics to track all user activities on your site - which is about 1000% easier.

Basically you include a small bit of javascript at the bottom of your widgets which sends information to your server to process who and where the widget is being used. this is a little intrusive, so you will need to get expressed permission from your users, otherwise people might think its phishing which could wind you in a bit of trouble.
