Will google pass juice from rel attribute?

 1:09 pm on Apr 12, 2011 (gmt 0)

If we have a jQuery link like:

<a href="#" id="link1" rel="popup-page.html">Link text</a>

Will google see the rel url and pass juice to it?

This is really ugly. Why are you doing that?

Looking for a jQuery lightbox that has a link in the lightbox.

That is how I am doing it today. Do you know of a better option?

the rel attribute is defined by conventional DTDs as being a Link type [w3.org] rather than a uri.

<a href="popup-page.html" id="link1" onclick="window.open('popup.html');return false;">Link text</a>

Even better, use the DOM to hook into normal HTML so that it simply looks like

<a href="popup-page.html" class="lightbox">Link text</a>

I can't think of any reason for the <a href="#"> or <a href="javascript:blah blah blah"> syntax

progressive enhancement:
it should work properly without javascript enabled.
then figure out how to make cool stuff happen with event handlers.
then make sure it is still usable without javascript.

what phranque said - which is basically the theory behind the code I posted previously.

I was just forced to order 12 products from a site where every single link was javascript driven. Couldn't open in a new tab (thus no side-by-side comparison). Terrible. I would have abandoned if anywhere else had this stuff.
