---- Does Google count links that use a redirect script?

via this intermediate link
This phrase can mean just about anything. I went back to check because I remember seeing it recently and it definitely isn't anything to do with scripts!
Link: /games/ "via this intermediate link": www.example.com/games/index.html

So "intermediate link" is what the originating site says, and the "real" link is how g### lists it.
Incidentally, I noticed while looking this up that the date g### gives for "most recent post" isn't the most recent post at all. It's the date of the first post. Gotta remember that in the case of threads that putter along for months. You may need to set a deeper time frame.
