    I have come across some sites that you just pop in your affiliate link and it blanks the referrer such as blankrefer . com. Is that all I need to do to blank the referrer? Or is that suspect looking?

    Doesn't HTTPS remove the referrer? All you need is to bounce your click through a https middleman.

    Would you mine showing a "middleman"? Thanks

    I wouldn't mine showing a middleman. But here's how you can strip the referrer.

    your site -> PHP script in a HTTPS host which redirects to -> your destination
