    Anyone know what happened to referer.us? It leads to some parked domain page from the looks of it. I checked my CPA earnings and was wondering why it was so low for the day, then I found out my entire site was redirecting to the parking page.

    Just a heads up in case anyone is using it and isn't aware that it's down.

    Up for me.

    Such a hilarious service. They state in big letters "WE HATE SPAM" and then right below that they have an ad for their paid cookie stuffing service. :D

    It's up for me right now, but I've stopped using them. I just host all blackhat stuff on an external domain to fake my referer.

    Nice to see such an active topic - given that half of BHW is probably using this as a solution, I'm surprised more people aren't asking questions about this, or providing feedback.

    What the heck can we do right now to recover these lost traffic streams but retain the working blanking solution?

    Most of my links go through referer.us

    Was in a big shock when I was getting no clicks/leads today but my traffic was the same.

    Then manually checked referer.us and it's down :( Hope it will be up soon

    Good question,

    I dont like to use anonym.to as it shows a black page before going to the cpa, and this will lead to a decrease in conversions as people will be put off by it.

    anyone have any better alternatives to anonym.to and more reliable then referrer.us?

    I found blankreferrer.com they redirect straight to the offer just like referrer.us did. No lost conversions or directing visitors to a extra page before your offer. If anyone could test this to make sure it legit and doesn't leak. Let us know.
