google told me to write a code like this to track links when i have many ways to go to a single page and i want to track the path without hurting seo. Google analytics told me to write this

a href="bob.aspx" title="bob" onClick="java script: pageTracker._trackPageview('bobMenu');">bob</a>

the tracker goes to bobmenu and instantly goes to the bob.aspx page but i get to see the path of the user for selling purposes. This is what i came up with- however i have no idea if it is bad for seo reasons- any ideas

I'm a bit lost what you are asking, but as far as the SE's are concerned they don't know the onclick exists, it's JS and they don't triger JS.

You're fine with that one.

Not only don't the spiders trigger onclicks in a normal sense as mentioned above, but Google and all the rest understand that pageTracker._trackPageview is Google Analytics code and nothing nefarious.
