Thanks in advance for your help
Some will, but many won't -- if the redirect is right on the HTML page. It's better to call an external .js file for the redirect.
The abuse of all kinds of redirect has made many SEs refuse to include any page that redirects the visitor. Unfortunately, this spam-busting decision also hurts sites with very legitimate redirects, such as yours.
