    I read from another forum that using adfly in your pages affects your ranking because google robot skips it. Has anyone using adfly experienced this? Please share your thoughts about this. Here the link to the forum where you can find the post that says it does. hxxp://thebotnet.com/webmasters/121071-does-adf-ly-affect-seo-and/ ...

    I'm not 100% sure, but it sure does seem it. It'd make sense because you're leaving your webpage, it'd also probably hurt Google's Spider because it can't wait the 5 seconds and click skip (I don't believe JS is enabled with Google's Bot either.)

    I can confirm Google will index your link, view Adf,ly's robot.txt <htxxp://adf,ly/robots.txt>
