Came across a suggestion in another place that ATW are counting clickthroughs, with maybe an effect on rankings.
Came as a surprise to me, so did I miss that class?

Apart from PFI pages I don't think they do it.
Can't remember seeing redirected urls.
Does of course not mean it never happens. Google is known to do it every once in a while on choice terms.

But on a regular basis and with an effect on ranking? No.

Thanks Heini, matter of interest, why do they do it with PFIs?

I've seen redirects on every alltheweb serp i can remember (from the US anyway).

Perhaps it's a new thing in Europe for them?

Jeremy, that's interesting. Before answering I had gone to ATW to make sure I didn't miss out on something new perhaps, tested several searches, where CTR data could be especially interesting - no redirects whatsoever.

Weird...geo targeting for the click tracking then?

Hmm...but if they are tracking clicks, why not go all the way / instead of making it regional?

If they are after that data, it makes more sense to me for them to get it *all*. :)
