A lot of our members link to us from thier own blogs, websites, ect…. But when they link to us, they use thier member referral link.
Is there a way to direct all of these to xxwww.MySite.com to absorb the back link juice? However When I forward them, it should still keep the linker’s credit for the referral if they create a forum account.
You could use IP delivery cloaking and use a 302 redirect if it matters enough to you.
I’m not sure how you would keep the “linker’s credit” since I don’t really know what that means, but I suspect there’s a way. If the “linker’s credit” is based on hits, they’ll just be credited with non-bot hits. However that works with joomla and vb, I’m sure it can be done by a competent programmer.
Cloaking may or may not be worth the trouble for you. (it’s trouble with upkeep and potential loss, I imagine.)
I would like referrer #2144 to keep credit for sending us a new member.
[PHP]RewriteRule ^(.*)/(.*)/(.*) index.php?p=$1&r=$2&n=$3[/PHP]
So someone linking to htp://www.mysite.com/a/b/c/ would be fine but it will actually call index.php?p=a&r=b&n=c (in this example) which means you can retain your credit. But of course, ppl will need to be told to link to /a/b/c
If you want to use the existing links you could reverse engineer that however you will have to know how to transform the directory /a/b/c to log their referer ID
