OT: Reciprocal links and SEO

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
If I've created a website for someone and add it to my portfolio on my shop
window site, then the inbound link from their site becomes a reciprocal
link, which as I understand it means it doesn't do any good for search
engine ranking.

Would something as simple as linking to a PHP script on my site that would
perform an HTTP redirect to the other person's website trick the search
engines into not treating it as a reciprocal link?  Or is that wishful

Alternatively, if I stick a NOFOLLOW directive in my metatags will that
achieve the same thing?

Any advice gratefully received.

IIRC, they are/were discussing just this issue at alt.internet.search-
engines - great information over there.
