I’m trying to track conversions, but want natural pagerank to pass through my links too. Am I correct in assuming that the following will always do conversion tracking, and then go to the destination url afterwards?
Now I’m trying to do this so that most of all clicks are tracked. However, I’m wondering if url.com/track.php is not running and down, will the click not go to the link location then (href of www.site.com)?
Or is it possible that doing the above might result in some clicks that are not truly tracked fast enough by url.com/track.php? From my testing this looks to work all the time for me. Maybe it's not iron-clad for some reason though?
I’ve seen people do similar things in the past, but never knew if this was a surefire way of tracking clicks or not. (Personally I’ve always used the method of sending the person to url.com/redirect.php?page=http://www.site…
but now want to do it while tracking the clicks AND sending page rank to the destination URL.)
