Is this enough to completely cloak my link?

    Currently, I send someone to http://example1.com. This has index.php set as

    PHP:
    <?php
    header
    'Location: http://example2.com/AFFID=3343' ) ;
    ?>
    and the page just loads as example2.com. There is no landing page, just a redirect, and on my browser (FF) I can't even hit the back button.

    Is there any way anyone could find out my aff ID from that? Any better suggestions than that?

    My browser doesn't even let me hit back to get back to example1.com.

    Thanks.

    It will in most cases, and most every time you test it, the process will work. I've noticed though that some browsers seem to erroneously lock in the referrer from the previous page, however.

    To give you some hard numbers, I used a script like that to serve and track pop-up traffic, and on the stats page out of 7,000 visitors 4 of the visitors passed the original referrer incorrectly. No problem for me of course, but in your case it would show 4 visitors from your blackhat site to your AM. Depending on how closely they look at things this could prove to be a leak.

    that code will pass through the original referrer, use this below to find out which referrer is passed to final destination
    PHP:
    <?php
    header
    'Location: http://www.whatismyreferrer.com/) ;
    ?>
