    Been using blankrefer.com script for quite a while on most of my outbound links..but its been down the past few days.

    And the script was hosted on their web server http://blankrefer.com/links.js

    Code:
    <!--links--><a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>
    <a 
    href="http://www.myspace.com">MySpace</a>
    <a 
    href="http://www.ebay.com">eBay</a>
    <a href="http://www.yahoo.com">Yahoo</a>
    <a href="http://www.Craigslist.org">Craigslist</a>
    <!--links-->
    
    <!--script at the end of the page-->
    <script 
    src="http://blankrefer.com/links.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script 
    type="text/javascript"><!--
    protected_links = "myspace,ebay";
    
    blank_refer();
    //--></script>
    <!--script at the end of the page-->
    Code:
    [B][I]Instructions:[/I][/B]
    
    [FONT=Times]All you need to do is embedded the code at the bottom of the website. It redirects all the links via blankrefer.com - except for the sites that were included in the protected_links tag. In vBulletin, for example, you can include the script code in the footer of the global templates (Styles&Templates - Global templates - Footer). In Wordpress, use the footer.php. Since the script can only anonymize links that have already been loaded at runtime, it's a good idea to place the code as close to the end as possible. Otherwise, links that appear after the script code would not be redirected via BlankRefer.com.[/FONT]
    Any recommended alternatives? I don't want anything that visually runs through another site eg
    http://dereferer.info - looks bad to users!

    Or any idea about the script?

    How difficult is it to setup something like this yourself?

    Could a Wordpress plugin like wptraffic tools be used?

    Thanks in advance

    It's really easy to setup yourself.
    I would make my own solution but to get you going, search for "double meta refresh".

    Thanks, but not sure I'm capable of that!

    Found http://letsw.com/ however it is not perfect as it shows referer as being "http://letsw.com/?jump=" (via http://www.whatismyreferer.com/ ) - I would prefer it to be blank ;)

    So I've been using http://letsw.com/ for a while - it was easy for me to setup (I use Wordpress)...however it's stealing a lot of my traffic :(

    Any other suggestions for outbound link anonymize?

    Tools/scripts as above....or if anyone wants to give me a price for creating something please do.

    Thanks

    How many clicks a day are you handling?

    Self-hosted solution is the best or if you are using WP, there are many plugins that can do this (like PrettyLink)
