on rollover for text? for links? for graphic change?

blackhawk answered 2 years ago

For text links, in the status bar, where you see a descriptor instead of the [url]http://[/url] url …. down at the bottom.

My bad :3eyes:

I see this all the time and am guessing people do it to mask affiliate ids.

Does it have merit? I dont know….

Does it hurt SEO, probably not

Does it help SEO, probably not

I guess if you want to mask affiliate links it serves its purpose, if not why bother?

Sorry its not much help, but I dont do rollovers on links and havent really seen the benefits…

I agree with you. I am putting them on one of my clean sites. I was doing it simply to make it completely sealed. I guess I’m just being a perfectionist <span title=” title=”” class=”bbcode_smiley” />

Thanks for infos!

The less Javascript, the better… in fact the less code, the better.

I don’t think it would hurt anything though, unless your Javascript was non-standard, or loading images from a different site (result: your whole site appears to hang if the other site is down or unavailable).

Cluttering your code with uneccessary trash will always hurt you for seo. This is one obvious example.

When I see this I see a domain hiding or ashamed of something. I personally would not have anything to do with such a domain.
