Has anyone see this happening on their sites?
Maybe Google could chime in and provide some insight?
Href link is to my server side redirect (www.mysite.com/aid=2345.jsp). Onmouseover shows destination URL to visitor as www.retailer.com and actual destination URL is redirected by an affiliate network (www.affiliate-network.com/PID=234442).
Sample link code with onmouseover added:
<a href="http://www.qksrv.net/click-xxx" target="_top" onmouseover="window.status='http://www.example.com/index.asp';return true;" onmouseout="window.status=' ';return true;">
<img src="http://www.qksrv.net/image-xxx" width="120" height="90" alt="Memory from example.com" border="0"></a>

Yes, I think more people will click on these links.
But my concern is that I have heard (hopefully incorrectly) that Google may penalize pages that use onmouseover scripts. BTW, this is not the only reason a site would use the onmouseover script - this is just one example I am using that I felt others could easily relate to.
