just curious, does the exitcounter thing when we post a link in the forums prevent it from counting as a backlink if the page is cached by google?

is that the reason for it?

Oooh... underlying motives ;) No I don't think that was the reason, I think it is used to check to see which pages get accessed the most from Ozzu. I would imagine that it DOES damage backlinks though :(

redirects like these are used in web directories a lot to stop "PR flow" or to channel it.

I don't know, I just find it a bit annoying :)

they're also used to see where your site is sending traffic.

The exit counter <i>seems</i> to be using an error 301 to redirect, which I heard (on this very site) that google likes. Would an error 301 redirect still reduce PR? I'm just wondering.....
