Can somebody please tell me if a link to mydomain in the form of: http://theirdomain/link.htm?LID=98&LinkName=http://mydomain.com will pass along PR to mydomain? I would also appreciate some discussion as to why or why not.
PS: I have searched WebmasterWorld looking for answers and have found some similar questions, but would like the current thinking on this particular link.
Google finds. [Google spiders dynamic sites] Google smells link roast. [Google follows my?whatever links] Google follows link. [Why be picky?] Google sees redirect, e.g. 302. [As it should be done] Google follows redirect. [Google follows 302 redirects between static URLs on my site] Google gets to target site. [As we know it does] Google passes PR. [Google passes PR through 302]
Hence Google works out www.theirdomain.org is linked to [mysite.com,...] and results in PR.
It doesn't matter what the parameters after? are... (so long as it's no more than absolute max 3)... it could be an internal index of domains.
And thus it is prooven and the matter is laid to rest. There is no reason whatsoever that Google WOULDN'T follow properly done redirects, dynamic, or static, and not pass on PR.
