When searching on Lycos to see in my PFI mess seen here, [webmasterworld.com...] was straighted out I noticed some sites, including mine have click.fastsearch.com/go2/2/ps/1c88... for the url instead of the actual domain. What does this mean? Is it a sign of sites recently spidered? Maybe sites that have PFI? Any ideas?

Can only guess here, Kris
Looks like a redirect url. Measurement of CTR for the new reports for PFI through PositionTech?

I would agree with heini here. It looks very much like tracking codes.
Kris, you can see your url at the end of the Lycos url though.

Actually I am using Insite Select not Position Tech. Propably the same thing though... Maybe this means Insite Select is actually going to offer tracking!

So I guess this would be a good way to identify PFI sites huh?

I can't imagine those urls are meant to be visible.

Looks to me like all results have this redirect, including my website which doesn't use PFI.

The links do show the real URL though, such as click.alltheweb.com/go2/2/atw/1c26D477BD/MSxILHdlYg/http/www.whatever.com/
