I thought I'd start this thread since I couldn't find the answer for a specific file type.
My specific question is this:
-If a site that use *.php file types links to me, will this be counted by the engines that care about links pointing at my page (i.e. Google).
My general question is this:
-What file extension types won't get spidered and counted as a link to my site if I swap with them.
You can always do a Google advanced search to determine whether a particular site's links are getting spidered.
Also, don't forget about the value of good link in generating direct traffic. I'm all for high page ranks, but I've obtained links from sites with average or below-average page rank that generate hits every day. I'd be far happier to have 500 visits a day coming from links on a hundred or two hundred other sites than from a #1 position that could get blown away overnight due to an algo change, a database error, a poorly tuned spam filter, etc.
