    Hi Goodie, great work. Can someone explain what's the utility for a forum to this type of redirection? Thanks :)

    Yeah I'm wondering this as well.

    I've seen many sites employ this. Sometimes with a redirection page to warn people they're leaving the site, other times without.

    But why would we need this? What benefit is there to anonymise the URLs?

    1. Improved SEO rating as the link mask your site as the portal to X site and thus direct less away from you
    2. Privacy as not to reveal where members are coming from

    About the only two things I can think of.

    rel=nofollow is what controls SEO linking... anonymity of URL's does nothing for SEO as Google discards redirects and measures the source to the origin, hence how affiliate links are also tracked so well by Google using this method, thus downgraded for affiliate sites offering nothing unique. Googles algorithm is much smarter than anonymous URL redirects unfortunately.

    You can actually test this in Google Analytics by setting up such redirects with tracking and watch analytics show the source and the origin only, discarding all redirects in-between.

    Hello everybody, my main objective is actually telling my visitors clicking the link something like:


    and also, I would like to 'track' everything from my site. and also what TheVisitors said: to not reveal where the members are coming from :)

    Does this have effect on all previous links, or just new links posted?
