Domain Redirects = Links?
Are domain redirects being counted as links by Google? I'm new to domaining and domain redirects, so when this is what my analytics program told me about this blog, I was more than a little surprised.

I was looking through my analytics software and saw that MontrealSEO.ca is a major "referrer" to this blog, which is actually hosted at cityseo.blogspot.com. Now, does this actually mean MontrealSEO.ca is being counted as a link by Google? What about the other engines?

I personally can't imagine that being the case, since then people would be just buying hundreds of domains and doing plenty of redirects... Furthermore, Google's opposition to buying links reinforces this impression. If you want content to rank rather than money, then you can't allow domain redirects to count as links, since whoever could buy the most domains would then dominate the rankings.

Incidentally, is there a way to have Google's analytics program "get" that it's not a referral, just someone typing in another address for the same site?
