Hi guys! My first post here. I currently have to deal with referrer-hiding and read some articles about it. Most of them describe a very difficult and not-always safe way. So I wondered, why the following would not be an easy AND safe solution: Let's say, you have your white hat site [goodsite] and your black hat site [badsite] So why not just link all affiliate links from both domains via e.g. [goodsite]/out.pl ??? (or call it external_link_counter.pl or whatever) In both cases, no matter if the ad was clicked on [goodsite] or [badsite], the referrer will always be [goodsite]/out.pl If someone checks your site, he will notice, that all you external links go through out.pl, which is absolutely not uncommon! To tweak the thing a bit up, you could let out.pl display a message for e.g. 3 sec. before redirecting like "You are leaving [goodsite]. [goodsite] is not responsible for the content of external links, blah blah blah..." out.pl could even display this message only of the ad was clicked on [goodsite], but directly redirect the user if he came from [badsite]. As I mentioned above, redirecting the user to external links via an out.pl is absolutely not uncommon. I have seen this on big commercial sites and also a lot of forums. As I am definitely not the first one coming up with this idea, I would be interested in, where I'm wrong that this, perhaps is not an ideal solution.
