Just a quick question:
On other ad-supported sites, users are always being encouraged to reach the sponsors' sites by clicking from the site, as opposed to just plugging the address into their browser. That way, advertisers can get solid numbers on how well their ads are generating traffic from each site on which they advertise. They can see if something's working or not.
I can't recall ever seeing this advice officially presented on the forums here. That is, that it helps this site most when folks reach the sponsors by clicking from PipesMagazine. Goodness knows, we're constantly reminding folks to visit the sponsors. But would it be better if we -- and the site owners -- stressed the importance of getting there from the the PipesMagazine home?
