    So I am using wordpress guardian on a blog of mine. Now here's the scenario.

    I send traffic directly to my guardian page. The page is locked, the user must click the link. The link is http://hiderefer.com/?LINKHERE. My question is, is the referrer blanked in this situation, since it passes through hiderefer? Sorry I am a complete noob at this I have no idea whether or not this works. And does hiderefer leak anything either?

    Thanks in advance,
    Achokshi

    Referer leaks are generally browser dependent. Unless you've tested a specific blanking service with all browsers, you shouldn't trust it. I know that many times the blanking service itself will be leaked as the referer with some browsers (particularly Chrome and Opera.)

    So how do you use hiderefer to mask leaks?

    Sound's to me like you don't ;)
    Since you are using WP give CPA Redirector a shot, Im in the middle of setting it up now. If I understand it correctly, you use a post in your wordpresses blog with ?mn=XXXX <---" special number" as the link
    By doing this it looks as tho the person is comming from your blog's page where you are hosting the ad. and whoever clicks on the link wont even see your blog just ship's them right to the cpa offer

    I assume you can use a shorting service like bit.ly to mask out your forum's addy.
    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, I'm new here :)
