I saw something yesterday that I have not seen before. When I saw it on my site, I checked a few other sites that I know use a redirect for links (like I do), and noticed the same issue. I'm not really sure if it's a problem or not! Here it is:

When I click on a redirected link (it's processed through my server) from a Linkshare or BEFREE merchant, I can see a little message that flashes in the lower lefthand corner of the window that opened (yes, I am using _blank). The message says "A Bad URL www.mysitename.com/redirectinfo" and then the link is redirected to the merchant site. I am using Explorer 6.0.2800, and I do not see the message on CJ or Performics links.

Any thoughts or feedback are greatly appreciated.
