    Eye-Opening post Laura, thank you!

    I took a like at my clients who have Omniture to see if it would help shed some light on a pattern for you, and don’t see a link back to Omniture on any of them; two of these sites are retail sites with Page Ranks of 5 or less and the other two are sites with Page Ranks of 6 – 8. There doesn’t seem to a pattern there, however they are all on Omniture Suite/SiteCatalyst 14.

    Looking forward to your next post.



    I just checked my a site I knew used Omniture – – and Yep – the link is in there.

    I was hoping you were going to give a strategy for using this to our advantage.

    These noscript links won’t affect Google’s search results–thanks for checking though!

    @Jes – Thanks for checking. We were 1 for 3 on our clients on Omniture.

    @afewtips – I could think of a few ways but I wasn’t sure there even was an advantage, which seems to be clarified by Matt.

    @MattCutts – Thank you for reading & clarifying!

    Cool post, I enjoyed it.

    matt you are right that it does not affect search results, but our tests reveal that it DOES affect relevancy, you guys should nail them for doing that.

    Why doesn’t it affect search results? Is all noscript ignored by goog in terms of link passing? Theres no need for them to even include a link in it but I suppose they thought they were being smart, e.g. google analytics doesnt.
