    Been a long time since I needed to hide/blank referrer so if any of the experts can answer this that would be great.

    If i put a link in an email such as hxxp://site1.c0m and my registrar is set up to forward that to hxxp://site2.c0m and THAT site is set up to forward to my money site (cpa offer), will my cpa affiliate mgr ever see that the traffic came from an email?

    Oh.. Well I guess it depends on how the registrar does the redirection. I wouldn't risk it myself...

    You could use some free hosting as an intermediary like http://www.000webhost.com/ or maybe http://www.t35hosting.com/.. Some spammers seem to use those for some thing.

    I don't know how Godaddy does the redirection (FUCK GODADDY COCKSUCKERS) but generally a 301 or 302 via htaccess or a server side header redirect will pass a referrer at least some of the time in at least some browsers. It doesn't matter if you're crossing domains; I've seen referrers from several redirects back show up in logs. If you're mailing then just use CPA redirector 2 - using the double javascript refresh and POST is virtually foolproof.

    First off why would you want to hide that the traffic is from email? Most networks love email traffic ;)
    (If the offer doesn't accept email, just ask your AM and you will usually get the OK).

    Next, are you trying to blank or fake the ref?
    BHW is quite lucky that JD has shared a couple of good scripts to hide the ref.

    The first one is a blanking script: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...erer-blanker-johnsondaniels-latest-share.html

    The second is a fake ref script: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-referer-any-offer-fake-referrer-script.html

    He's pretty active and if your having trouble setting up the script, he will usually jump in within a day or so ;)

    You could use a service like unrefer or hiderefer to remove the referrer. Sorry not allowed to post links but you'll find there sites easily by googling them or just adding the extension :)
