    How do I make a redirect that would redirect someone to another site and make it impossible for them to trace where the redirect comes from. For example if someone is redirected from a fictional website mywebsite dot info, how do I make it impossible for the people at the other website to know that the referrer is mywebsite.info, and preferably replace the referrer with a referrer of my choice. I've tried using php header(Location: otherwebsite dot com) and I believe it works sometimes, but do any of you have a better suggestion?

    Maybe multiple redirects? And is it possible to test if it works?

    Sites like anonym.to and hiderefer.com will do what you want to do.

    To completely blank out the referrer, google "Double Meta Refresh".

    To fake the referrer, google "Brad's CPA Redirector 2.0" - Brad's a member here but I can't find the thread.

    I can't use the double meta refresh for my purpose, so I need something else. Mabe it's possible using php.

    Not gonna happen with straight PHP. Any server-side redirects will likely leak the referrer. If you really want to hide / fake the referrer you're going to have to do it on the client-side.

    DMR will blank the referrer (not the best solution). You can also use javascript creatively with iframes to create a controlled footprint... although you'll need to control all the client pages (not the final destination page) to make it work with iframes and javascript.

    Why can't you use double meta refresh for your purpose? The php header("Location: name_of_site") should do the trick, why do you say it only works sometimes?
