Do search engine count a backlink inside javacript?

I found couple of answers, some say if search result able to cache the script and link, which means search engine able to follow the backlink. Others say no, because search engine cant execute the link inside javacript.

Anyone know the answer?

Thank you. It is up to date article, although there is no direct answer for this question, but we can use Lynx to examine a site.


The answer is, to use a text browser and find out for yourself. :slight_smile: I imagine it will depend to some extent on how the site is coded and the scripts used, so there will not be one definitive answer for all sites.[/FONT]

No search engine will not count the back links inside java script,
