    Depends. If you make a serverr redirect then you can only hide the referral. If you have your own application you can provide custom referral as well. Explain our situation - it's hard to help without knowing the details.

    You can always use an URL Shortener to hide it.

    Thanks for the reply. Actually I would be promoting an e commerce website on Google Adword but as term of site they do not allow Adwords hence I want to give the referral of a coupon site instead of Google Adword. I believe URL shortener will not serve the purpose. I heard about CPA redirector and trying to ready more about it. In case if you have any other solution please feel free to share.

    Still unclear. So you promote an aifflite link an Google Adwords, but your partner site prohibits that? If so, why don't you just make your own landing page and promote it with Adwords, sending the clicks to your partner site?

    Hi Noopower, My bad I could not explain it properly. Let me try another attempt. For example lets say client is Amazon, and they do not allowed Google Adword. In this scenario if we put amazon utm in google adword they will get the google referral whereas we want to give a referral of any of our site. Yes we do have our own landing page but if we drive traffic through our own landing page conversion goes down and user have to do an additional click to reach to the Amazon page. We want to run the Google adword and send traffic directly to Amazon and want to send another link as a referral instead Amazon. Hope this makes it clear.

    I got it. But I give you a 100% guarantee that this is technically impossible. I myself am engaged in development of multiple applications and sites, and recently faced a similar task. There are no options, sorry.

    But think twice about your landing page. Though immediate conversion may be lower, you can add to your page a lead magnet, start building your list and then promote to it special offers from your Amazon partner (and other sites you are affiliated with) on a regular basis. This may give you much more conversions in the long run.

    I used to use a script that was shared here years ago - probably in 2010 - 2011. I see there are some newer scripts shared since then, although from a few years back, so I'm not sure if it will still work (if you do some more digging around, you might be able to find more recent scripts):

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/free-fake-referrer-script-tested-in-chrome-firefox-and-ie.747147/

    I haven't done this in years, but I think no matter what script you use/make, you do risk the true referral leaking every now and then, so keep that in mind. Back when I used this on a few networks and never had any issues.
