The article in question is on the following link and you will need to go down to the bottom to see the live links back to my site.

The link they have going back to my site is below:

If these publishers are doing this - should i stop sending them content??

    They are redirecting your link. So if you're looking for backlinks for SEO, then you're not getting it. But if you're looking solely for click-throughs and visitors, then it's fine. Really just depends on your goal for publishing there.

    Thanks kposs - we ll they do send quite a bit of traffic my way - but it is a shame about the backlink - i was looking for the best of both worlds.
