    I'll tell you a great software:

    It's called BlackHatWorld Cloaking Subforum Search Function v1.0 Beta.

    Best of all, it's free.

    Adtrackz works very well for this purpose, or you can do a php redirect. Use this code:

    <?php
    header('Location: your_affiliate_link');
    ?>

    Put that code on a notepad, insert your affiliate link, save the notepad on your pc, go to properties a change the extension of the file from txt to php, then upload this file to your server in a folder called something lile recommneds or go or whatever.

    If you are using wordpress, try the plugin "Pretty Link"

    That way you don't have to deal with any coding at all ;)

    What about the GoCodes plugin if you use Wordpress?

    I don't think a single method that won't get you caught has been mentioned in this thread so far :3 I'm pretty sure a single PHP redirect is going to pass your referer...

    There are multiple reasons why someone would want to cloak a link (as opposed to "cloaking" a page) and hiding the referrer is not an issue for some of these.

    1. If you want to just make a pretty looking link so visitors don't think you're using an affiliate link and you want to get around virus scanning software wiping your CJ and other links, then a simple PHP header() call works well as stated here.

    2. If you are using Wordpress you have the option of many plugins - Redirection, gocodes, prettylinks, Soda Popper, etc. Most can do some level of counting clicks but they aren't full stats programs. But for simple link cloaking and tracking who is clicking on what links they work really well.

    3. If you want to hide the referrer (for example, to hide your super ***** traffic sources from a CPA program) the you can use a tracking script like T202, CPVLab, etc. or you can use DMR (double meta refresh) or scripting to wipe the referrer.
