Hi :)

I am using javascript document.write function to write some content & links on my webpage.
Will googlebot follow these links? Or google will not notice them?

I always understood that it didn't but would be happy to be corrected as I use them a lot in one area of my site.

I can tell you that it doesn't follow mine. Try a Lynx browser, if it won't follow it (and it probably won't), Google won't either most likely.

If a character string in the argument for document.write() looks like it might be a URL, Google will sometimes try to spider it --although with a pretty low level of priority.

However, that is the simple discovery and spidering of a URL, not the transference of PR and backlink influence. In my experience, links written with javascript are not given true and full "link treatment", and the url itself is only spidered some of the time.
