Chris and Gurtie at Search Guild have published a working script that webmasters can insert into their webpages that kills Google AutoLink links.

What you need to do:

  • Insert the script anywhere in your html

  • or link it using the <script> tag in the <head> of your pages

  • and it will rewrite, the rewritten urls. Killing the Autolink functionality.

  • Here is the code:

    // AutoBlink
    // Puts Google's Autolink on the Blink :)
    // (c) 2005 Chris Ridings http://www.searchguild.com
    // Redistribute at will but leave this message intact

    var linkcount;
    function countlinks() {
       var numlinks;
       for (i=0; i < document.links.length; i++) {
       return numlinks;

    function checklinks() {
       if (!(linkcount==countlinks())) {
        // Something changed the links!
        // Iterate for an id of _goog
        for (i=0; i < document.links.length; i++) {
        if (document.linksi.id.substring(0,5)=="_goog") {
         // If we find an id of _goog then remove the link!
         var tr = document.linksi.parentTextEdit.createTextRange();

    if (document.getElementById && document.createElement) {
