I know google doesn't bother about unfriendly charactors in urls like "?" and "=" so we should be ok, right?
Welcome to WebmasterWorld
I would not worry too much about any losses in tool bar PR, you have a good link there thats what counts. The tool bar is only an indication of a sites (and links) value. It is not an absolute value.
If /links.cfm is not in their robots.txt, google is allowed to follow the redirect, and your page will get the PR from the link.
If /links.cfm is in their robots.txt, google will probably not follow the link and you will get no PR.
What this means is that if it doesn't show this month, but it's not being banned by robots.txt or the meta tags, it might show up next month - or the following, or whatever.
Dino_M , - Yeah, I did a backward link search and got zip...
The problem is, we made a bit of a mess with the content of the site. It is a travel site and several of the itenerery pages where beign driven out of a db. Google (I think)picked up that these pages were all duplicated and the site is being heavily penalised.
We corrected the problem and I went on a huge reciprocal linking drive to try and convince google that the site is quality.
WE've managed to get a few links from pages with high PR...
I guess i just gotta be patient...
