    I'm wondering what the general population of BHW does when they want to hide their traffic's referrers - blank or fake?

    Reason is, I'm coming out with a new product soon, and part of it will be to do with referrer faking/blanking. Personally, I'd rather only add blanking to this product as faking requires the addition of a whitehat site to use as the referrer, but I'd like to see what the general usage is. This is especially interesting as I feel that I see more threads on blanking then faking, and I would've thought that more people here would prefer to fake.

    Interesting Product idea.

    I haven't really implemented any, so I'm really not your target market but I think it's great to promote on here, wish you lot of success with it!

    I think the general school of thought is to fake referrer .

    Blanks lead to more questions about your traffic. Fake it until you make I say..

    Faking is more effective than blanking, as it doesn't lead to questions at all. Just make sure the page you are faking from has a banner rotator featuring CPA offers and it will look totally natural.
