BWM, why do you slow down our viewing in this manner?

It's to track which urls get clicked i would guess. and to stop people using ozzu to up thier backlinks.

How does it slow you down? It takes, what, MAYBE half a second max to forward you to the destination URL?

Google does it too, as do many other sites & search engines.

Fair enough, it doesn't seem to slow down my modem much anymore, just a one time thing I guess. It was taking like 5 seconds.

OZZU gets a lot of traffic, and sometimes the server load gets high and causes some slight delays. I believe Bigwebmaster is already working towards correcting that.

Also it is possible it wasn't the exit script at all causing your delay, and simply the site you were trying to load was slow, and/or having response issues. There could be any number of factors involved in why it took you a few seconds to load, including problems on your end. For the most part a redirect uses hardly any resources on the server and takes place very fast.

Where can i get the script?
I tried another one but it messed the links up.
I'm also using a phpbb forum.

Sometimes redirects like this *seem* slow because the redirect URL (the exit.cgi one) shows in the address bar while the new URL (the site you are tyring to visit) is waiting to load. If the new URL is slow, then the redirect URL will appear to be the one that is slow, even though it is not the case.

Try it out with a fast site and a slow site to see.

The redirect script sucks for getting crawled spider traffic from the search engines and gaining pr. I run a reciprocal links directory and we have had to do a lot of research in this field. After our research was over; there were no search engines able to follow redirect urls. :((

I think that's the point (or an additional bonus at least): to stop people spamming their links on Ozzu to gain extra PR.
