What javascripted links do the search engines crawl through? Specifically, what javascript coding implementation can be crawled? window.open? location.href?

Thanks for any help.

nothing is foolproof, i don't think, but in my experience links will get followed if you include the full URL (eg: [website.com...] inside the script

if you DON'T want them following the link then the best thing to do is stick it inside a function in an external script, and then just call the function from the page. that way there is pretty much zero chance of it being followed.
