I haven't looked around (or kept up) lately on what google considers ok or not ok...regarding click tracking codes.

I do most of my sites through pure HTML, so was wondering if this type of link click tracking is generally still ok -

making an .html file with the following for each outbound link :

<title>click tracking</title>


<script type="text/javascript">

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;
url=http://TheOutBoundLink.com" />

If considered legit...should I change the content="0; to content="1; for better chance of stat reporting ? (basically would just give an extra second)

This could be considered an old school / outdated approach...some things I forget about and just put on the back burner for years..
