The legends for these badges say
Shared a link to a question that was visited ...
But if I share a link directly to the answer, like this one, does it also count for these badges?
BTW, does it also count if I share the link at StackExchange site? Or must it be outside? This is not written in the legend nor here.
EDIT: Feb 26 2012: It seems links to answers work too??!! 2 days ago I received an Announcer badge, but the link pointed to answer!! I don't remember publishing any other link to this question.
