jquery post data

Ok a little new to Jquery, trying to post data to my controller but getting 500 error because I can not post any data.

$(document).ready(function () {
         $("a").click(function () {
             if ($(this).val && $(this).attr("id")) {
                 //alert(this.id);
                 $.ajax({
                     url: this.action,
                     type: this.method,
                     data: $(this).serialize(),
                     success: function (result) {
                         $.post('@Url.Action("mylist", "List")', function (id) {
                             alert(this.id);
                                //$.each(data, function (index, value) {
                                //    $("a").val(this.id)
                                //    alert(this.id);
                                //});
                            });
                        }
                   });
             }
             else {
                 'nothing happen'
             }
           
         });
     });
 <a href="#" id="33" class="ui-link-inherit" >link1</a>

Where is the error happening?
An anchor tag does not have an action or method attribute.
url: this.action,
type: this.method
data: $(this).serialize(),
,

If you want the FORM attributes then use

url: $(this).closest("form").attr("action"),
type: $(this).closest("form").attr("method"),
data: $(this).closest("form").serialize(),

The first thing to do is in my first comment, your code is trying to get attributes that don't exist.
