    Need free tool to redirect from my website -> some URL (not in my website) -> Destination URL So the owner of the destination URL can't see the my website as the source of the traffic, Destination URL can only see the "some url" as the source.

    How many links are we talking about? Google has a URL shortener API you could use?

    Google shortener is highly critical of anything closely related to spam. Your best options are:

    - Buy a domain and do a redirect
    - Use a less-known link shorter (just google "link shorter")
    - create a blogger site and then add this to the html:
    Code:
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0; URL='full-website-address-here'" />

    This code is helpful in hiding the actual link with a specific keyword.

    Well if you take how much the word "Google" has been search for right inside Google or even a simple URL that could have been just as easily typed in the address bar, I would say "Yeah Really" :)

    <metahttp-equiv="refresh"content="0; URL='your site'"/>

    Uh hey so I've used this code before and it seems to work. The only problem is that your website will be visible for like a second before the redirection so I would suggest typing something like "please wait a few seconds for the site to load ... " or something like that. This can also work with blogspot . I got to warn you though, if an affiliate network doesn't allow direct linking, it probably won't allow re-directions either. Read the TOS first. Now I'm not saying that they'll ban you but they could bring up that card whenever they want to.

    edit : I just realized someone already mentioned the code. I'm just leaving this here for the extra advice

    Link cloaking allows you to create easy to understand URLs for your outgoing affiliate links.

    There are lots of link cloaking options out there. I have no idea how to tell if one is better than another, but I've never had an issue.

    If you've bought a domain through go daddy you can easily set this up in their domain management tools section. Log in, navigate to your domain management control panel, click on your domain and it will bring up the settings page for it. On this page there is a section part the way down called 'redirects'. Click the 'manage' link and setup a redirect and choose the option that includes masking. Now hit save and you will need to wait a couple of minutes for the DNS information to propagate. Once it has propagated enter the domain name in the address bar. BOOM. It takes you to your aff links page but the address bar just says your domain name the whole time.

    You haven't provided enough information for anyone to provide really solid direction. The usage scenario dictates largely what is the best and most secure approach to take in these regards. Sure link shorteners work quite well for a lot of people's uses. Still others rely on ages old referrer-spoofing solutions because those meet their needs. By and large those with good budgets and who are promoting their links on major social networks in bulk or with paid media often use cloaking solutions that allow their ads to fly under the radar of most network snooping and often under the radar of the typical ad-spying softwares.

    So what is going to work best for you depends. I think most of us have likely assumed correctly that a simple url shortener meets your basic needs in their simplest form and is also one of the easiest solutions to implement, but again it really depends on how you do it. There are lots of clever ways to make use of these tools, and if you share your exact need with more detail I'm confident a very precise solution could be provided. Otherwise, try the url shortening thing, and you'll likely find it's fine for your usage case.
