What about affiliate links, wrapped in redirects ? I create CGI and ASP wrappers around my affiliate links, which, when clicked, store pertinent information in local databases about my visitors, and then query a local DB of mine to obtain the destination affiliate URL, and perform a final redirect to the affiliate site itself (this, as opposed to just hardcoding the affiliate URL's directly in my pages). I always "nofollow" these links ? Are you saying that this is a bad practice ?
