I'd say he was right. You use an http header to redirect to his site right?
AFAIK, in fact I'm certain, thant wouldn't count.

Sorry, didn't quite understand your reply.
Our asp page uses a server-side redirect <%response.redirect "http://www.site.com"%>
Is that not ok?

How than can ou provide creditable links and still be able to count clicks?

Google follows server-side redirects and credits the links to the PageRank of the target. At least, I'm pretty sure about that - when I moved my domains and server redirected requests to the old pages, all the PR seemed to transfer.

Your asp stuff is sending an http header to redirect.
I can't see any real solution to this problem, it has to be a straight link and by definition there is no way you can do anything once it's clicked.
If you're needing to report to a client/subscriber, one way would be to write some generic JS to give them and have it tally up the amount of clickthroughs at their end.
Not ideal, but I can't think of anything else....

if you use server.transfer instead of response.redirect you should be fine
only works on 2000/XP though (NT4 it won't work)

Server.Transfer only works on internal pages and cannot be used to redirect to an external URL or page.
