Tracker in backlinks?

    Does anyone use their trackers in backlinks from other sites?  I am curious if this affects Google ranking since the indexed URL of a hub doesn't contain the tracker.  Does anyone know if this makes any difference to Google or negates the quality of the backlink?

    Avoid using trackers at social bookmarking sites, because if someone else has linked to the same hub with the 'trackerless' URL or their own tracker it's not something that such sites are particularly fond of.

    Otherwise, the way HP HQ have the tracker redirect work is that it resolves correctly. So the link does count as a backlink.
