Pass PR onto advertisers and count click throughs

Hi Guys and Gals,

I currently have a system whereby I count click throughs of advertisers links via a redirect link.

<a href="advert_redirect.php?advert_id=1"><img src="advert.gif"</a>

The advert_redirect.php script counts the click and pulls the advertisiers link from the DB before redirecting the user to the advertisers page.

The trouble with this method is that the advertiser doesn’t get the SEO benefit of having a link to their site (or does he???)

Is there a better way to do this so the I can count the click throughs and the avdertiser can have the SEO benefit of a direct link to their website?


Not quite sure what you mean exactly, but I’m guessing you want all the header information to be passed on to the redirection page? Perhaps try a 301 redirect, its more seo friendly :wink:
