    I'm trying to figure out what would be the best way to blank my referrer so noone can see where the traffic/conversions are coming from? I was told SSL, so I set up a free SSL on my tracking domain and I have it set up like this:

    click link on http ://landing page -> https ://trackingdomain.com/offerlink -> Offer

    the link on the landing page goes to an https ://trackingdomain.com/offerlink but if I enter http :// stardrifter.org/ cgi-bin/ ref.cgi instead of the actual offer and click the link from my landing page it will show my landing page as the referrer.

    Am I doing this wrong? is there a better way to do this?

    Thanks for readin

    Use a double meta refresh (dmr). If you're not sure how to do it, have a look at this post: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo-tools/20750-double-meta-refresh-redirects.html#post191524

    of course im using dmr.. ive mastered dmr..but it has some issues w certain browsers, hence the need for ssl. but ssl is giving headache, not blanking referrers. what am i doing wrong?

    Hairspray. Not sure what you are doing, but an option is telling them straight up that they need FireFox or some browser that your DMR supports or they can't do whatever you want them to do.
