Does the "goto=" attribute pass any link juice?

 9:20 pm on Jun 28, 2010 (gmt 0)

Quick question, I found a site willing to link with me, but they have an intermediary disclaimer ("you are leaving this site") that requires you to press "yes". The link pointing from the page read:


Will this pass any juice to the blue widgets page? Thanks!

imho They are trying to be clever, perhaps in one of two ways:

1) they may be trying to prevent pr leaking from their site..


2) they are trying to trace how many people actually use their links.

I think they may be trying to do both.

It may or it may not - it depends on how it was coded.

How to find out?
Webmasterworld provides a tool
If you click 'control panel' at the top of this page, and then scroll down and choose 'server headers' from the menu on the left and drop the (unedited) link above in it, it will tell you if value is being passed.
'301 Moved Permanently' means value is passed.
Anything else, in particular a 302, means it is not

(Other sites around the net provide similar tools)
