FWIW, I've recently noticed a number of sites that had good PR and links but had low rankings were stuffing noscript tags......

Absolute, Google reads noscript tags. I don't know whether it cares for content in there or not. But it certainly does follow links from within those tags.

This is interesting.. Im using a traffic analasis script, that uses <noscript> tags.. Will this effect my google ranking?

Well, I dont think having content or link in the <noscript> tag is a good idea. I would even label it as a spamming technique. Google definately reads <Nosript> and the user doesnt..right?. Likewise, Google also reads Hidden text, hidden link etc which the user cant..right? , Hence Kindly avoid anything which is made specially for the search engines and not for the user.

Yes. I do understand that the noscript tag is meant for the said purpose but the fact that it has been so misused really makes me wonder whether its a very good idea to use the same.
