    Hello BHW,

    I have a noob question.
    Please have a look at this article

    In the second paragraph, you can see the anchor text 'New York Times'. When I hover the mouse over it shows the target URL which is: [...]ww.nytimes.com/2006/12/19/business/20leonhardt-table.html
    but when you click it goes to this:
    which then redirects you to the initial target URL.

    How is that made? Please just point me to what I should research, no need to spoon feed me :)
    Also is that a type of ad? Is he earning something for the click on that link ?

    Thank you
