Common Mistakes when Developing Inward Links
Should I be concerned HOW others link to my site?

We have started our inward link development campaign. As an initial effort, we have chosen some directories and other sites that allow you to submit a url for free. We have been careful to pick only those sites that have good PRs, are relevant to our website, and otherwise do not appear to be "the wrong neighborhood".

We are starting to get some inward links from this initial effort. However, I have noticed that some of these links are structured in a way that may not be recognizable by spiders. For example, one site uses linking code that looks like this: [<a href="http://[linker's URL].com/?id=4321&url=myUrl">] as opposed to [<a href="http://[ my URL].com">] Will google (and others) be able to identify this type of link as an inward link to our site?

I would love an answer to the question above, but feel free to post other common mistakes you feel are important.
