Hi,

I've got a client (new site) who's advert appears on a local newspaper website - the section that it appears in has a good pagerank (5)

The link is composed of the following elements:

http://ads.domain.com/click.asp?id=999&url=http://www.clientdomain.com

Will this have ANY effect at all on the SE's rankings, and will the SE spider find the website in question or will it treat it as a doorway page?

More details on the exact domain and page can be given if required.

Mike

For future readers:

frugle supplied the details and they were essentially as he described above and without any extenuating circumstances.

The link as frugal said above was of the form:

http://ads.domain.co.uk/click.asp?id=999&url=http://www.mydomain.com/directory/file.htm

And in this case my conclusion was that Google will almost certainly follow the link but not credit mydomain with it and hence there will be no PR transfer.
