    hi,

    if i make a pretty link and put it on another different website, will my merchant know where the original click/visitor from if i get click ?

    e.g. i make link like this:

    www.website1.com/go/affiliatelink

    and i put this link to my another website2

    so do my merchant know the click is actually from website2 or just website1?

    The only method I know of hiding the referrer is putting the link on a HTTPS site... I've heard of other methods but the HTTPS trick is the only one ive actually experimented with.

    If you want to check yourself, you can make a link and point it toward this website: https://httpbin.org/headers

    It will show all the headers the server receives including the referrer

    EDIT: I had originally thought you meant you were linking directly from website2 to amazon, but if your actually linking website2 to website1 then redirecting to amazon then I would definitely just cloak the content.

    If you truly must hide the referrer 100% of the time and not depend on the shortener, you need a pro cloaker.

    A good cloaker doesn't miss. It correctly detects where the visitor is from. You can do some cloaking yourself or using free plugins, but once it involves a bigger volume of money it's gonna spell trouble cuz it attracts competitors and reviewers. Good cloakers cost $ to maintain.
