    Anyone played around with this?

    I've been testing it out and getting indexed for the link to the URL in the HREF attribute, meanwhile allowing engines to discard the ONMOUSEDOWN attribute's contents.

    Wondering if anyone is playing with this of late, with redirects etc?

    PS. Used QUOTE wrapper because the code, html and php wrappers are terribad.

    well, I threw up some sites last night, and got them indexed with that link type and linked them through to another domain and G indexed both links, I just thought it was strange.

    It had dual listings for the anchor text and TWO listings from the same link to two pages. If that makes sense.

    G crawls onmousedown and other events (seemingly).

    href is the prefix in html to refer to an object(like an image or file) in a specific location, onmousedowm is to provide functionality of a scroll bar to a pop up window.

    Well, chatting to people on Twitter I read an article from MC from G about what G can do, i.e. getting better at indexing filetypes, getting better at indexing Flash and getting better at indexing JS components.

    To be honest, this isn't a new thing. I guess it was born out of parent websites wanting link juice to be passed with the regular link and be able to track the inbound clicks or traffic by using the onmousedown event.

    I didn't expect to get indexed for both the HREF attribute's contents and ONMOUSEDOWN event, it was just an idea.

    How am I using it? Only in test still. A trial between two pages and these link types on them. I'll do my best to report back. Im doing it on a PR 7 blog of mine without rel="nofollow" in the links (obviously since I want them to be picked up and followed). On the blog, it is passing a somewhat authoritative link to a new page on a new site for a niche phrase that has zero competition in G. From that domain I do a link:domain.com and see the two links as sources.

    I added one more link to the page and pointed it to a new domain, was crawled within 30 minutes and link:domain.com showed two IBLs. So it's working for now. To be honest I think it's a glitch and won't work forever.

    On some datacenters it also is confirmed to NOT be working. Which is weird to say the least.

    Yeah, so far I'm liking these weird results. I think it might not last long though.
