    Hey!

    Is there any good working method for hiding outgoing links on a page?

    YES! I know this is blackhat and is risky.

    But what I'm looking for is a method that is not auto detected by the crawlers. Anyone got any experience of this in 2019? z-index undetected? font color same as background? maybe some javascript?

    Thankful for any input!

    I think you should see how they hide it for pbns and implement it for your outgoing links

    You can make the links as No Follow that might help a bit

    Why do you wish to keep it hidden in the first place?

    Not even close to what im trying to achieve

    Welcome to blackhatworld

    No I want some outbound links not to be visible on the page

    Why is that? I am sure most methods for doing this is automatically detected, like cheap css tricks.

    Those are two different things altogether.

    OP, not many people are still doing this as crawlers are doing source crawls too and any sort of link will get picked up unless you tunnel it in which case, you’ll still get caught. I’m sure there are ways that people are getting by though.
