    I want to create a referral.
    I want FB users to download a file from a file hosting CPA network. (Means they have to complete a survey to download the file)

    I dont want CPA network to know that traffic is coming from FB, instead it should look like traffic is coming from my Wordpress website.
    Also I dont want downloaders to see my website and they should directly go to CPA network's file downloading link.

    So how should i set up that particular link on my Wordpress website ? The link will be visible on my website, so if CPA network checks, it look legit.

    The plugin is not available. The website wpblackhat redirects to another site.
    I think, 3-4 lines of php code can do it. Let me see if i can find another plugin.

    OK, i found one solution.
    Facebook >> mywebsite dot com/RedirectPage.php >> CPA File.
    Will this work ? Will CPA able to trace back FB page or will see only redirect page of my website ?

    This process wont work as the initial traffic source is FB and since referral data passed by the browser, your browser will save FB as the initial referring source. What you need to do is:
    1. drive traffic from FB to an intermediate page (page A) on your domain.
    2. then use a self submit form with JS to another page (page B) on your domain
    Code:
    document.getElementById(\'someID\').submit()
    
    3. page B should check whether a POST request has been generated from page A using a server-side script like PHP for ex,
    Code:
    if(isset($_POST['submit'])){
    // return an HTML code that redirects to your CPA offer with Meta-Refresh code
    
    }
    
    4. if so, pass the user to your CPA url.

    Thus, the referring url will be your website (page B) and not FB.

    hey, what exactly you want to track ? which link in the process ?
    and, yes, GA will work for tracking so as Clicky.
