direct links & nofollow/ follow option for banners?

Post by jasperli » Mon Feb 22, 2016 8:53 pm

Hi,

I am using the component on my website and i like the functionality. Although i am thinking about SEO regarded to certain "partner" links/banners.
To get high SEO validation i ask my website partners to set a follow link from their website pointing to mine. Now in return they off course expect a link back from me to theirs.

With the default activated url cloacking (/component/flexbanners/?task=click&id=1) of the component all links are internal and therefore not counted as SEO score for the partners. Same.. i think it's nice to have the choice as webmaster set the real url instead of the cloaked one.
This requires two additional config options:
* general links: nofollow / follow
* override per link: nofollow / follow

What is your opinion about adding these extra overrides setting to allow certain links to get a follow status and the plain url ?
Or i am thinking wrong here about SEO ?

The problem is that it isn't a cloaked link as such, it's the mechanism that counts the clicks. If you had a direct link it wouldn't collect stats.
