    Was just wondering if there was a site you could go to or something to see if the referrer was getting properly blanked.

    If you're using firefox you can use the Live HTTP Headers plugin.

    I usually check by pointing my links at the following PHP script which I have hosted on one of my domains:

    Code:
    <?php
    
    $referer = $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
    
    if ($referer == "")
    {
    	$referer = "[Blank]";
    }
    <div align="center">The referer that will be seen by your affiliate network is:<br><br><b><?php echo $referer; ?></b></div>
    ?>
    
    Another way is to point your links at http://my-i-p.com which will show you the referrer amongst other things.
