On the Pandia site:

"Google and "Onmouseover" penalties
(May 2 2003) This one is strictly for the search engine optimization people among you.

The Search Engine News newletter reports that Google may be downgrading pages that contains affiliate links coded with the javascript "onmouseover" variable.

Normally if you point at a link with you mouse the click through Web address will appear somewhere in the browser. Some webmasters use this javascript to hide the affiliate URL from readers, in the belief that users are less likely to click on affiliate links."

>>> I hope this is not true because I think this is really stupid as I, for example, use a "onmouseover" script not to hide an url but to add text when you put your mouse over a link! The url is not hidden at all! So I hope Google is not thinking about doing that...
