OT: Reciprocal links and SEO

    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
    thinking?

    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.
