    I need to know if a web crawler simulates a link or if it redirects to a
    link.

    Meaning i have a link that looks like this

    <a href="#" onclick=redirect(5))>Home</a>


    Will a crawler be able to handle this?

  2. Most crawlers would not be smart enough to figure that out. Standard URLs
    are safer if crawlability [is that a word?] is high on your list of
    requirements.
