I have opportunities to refer to some of my hubs here from my other web sites. I wonder whether or not it would be treated as external links by SE if I add my url tracker? Adding the tracker would potentially bring me referrals, but I have to think it twice in certain cases if that spoils the other purpose, or adding the tracker gives me both benefits?
I'd say add the tracker.
According to Paul Deeds, the tracker does not impact on the SEO quality of links.
And you could get some nicely earning referrals as well!
