Is there a definitive way to stop search engines from making click-throughs?
I'm using a redirect script which gets the affiliate url from the database and then redirects to that page. So I figured if I simply have a ban in my robots.txt
file, on that particular redirect.php file, for the search engines, it should work.
Are there any ways that we can stop search engines from 'making click-throughs' as they index the pages, and keep our stats 100% accurate?
Thanks (in advance) for any help.

I keep a list of match strings and IP addresses of "bad bots" that don't honor robots.txt. My redirect script checks those and sends them a "403 forbidden" response code instead of redirecting.
