Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
(302 redirect). I would like to do this to count clicks.

u could also have rel="nofollow" in the links too.
That's not a good idea for at least two reasons:
1) It discourages inbound links (who wants to link to a site that cheats with its outbound links?).
2) It isn't the way that Google and other SEs intended that "nofollow" be used, and since linking is the basis of Google's PageRank concept, it seems reasonable that Google might take a dim view of sites that try to hoard PageRank by using "nofollow" on non-blog links.
At the moment each site links to the other sites at the top of each page (6 links in all).
So, given that each site has thousands of pages, they all have a fair few IBLs and equally external links from one another.
Given that they're all from the same IP address, is Google gonna catch on and penalise me? So far, it hasn't, but who knows....
My dilemma is: keep things as they are and hope for the best. Or, perhaps add "nofollow" to the links in the header? Or redirects instead? But of course then each site will suffer from a reduction of IBLs.
Soon I'm gonna launch the same sites overseas, and then the problem is amplified yet further.
