    What does it mean to blank the referrer, or it is blank the refer? So you take your affiliate link and mask it or something?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Note: Sorry for the extreme noob thread.

    If you blank the referer your AM won't see the traffic source.

    Refer/Referrer, same thing. It simply means that you use some sort of method that will cover your tracks so that your affiliate mgr will not see where your traffic is coming from. You might want to do this for a number of reasons such as: Your traffic is blackhat and you know your AM will can your ass from the network. Or, you are concerned that your AM will steal your method for him/herself.

    Answer me this: Did you search before you chucked up this?

    Even a google search for either one of the terms would have given you the answer...

    And here is the start of that page:

    Sorry man, hate to be pedantic - but a simple search of Google/BHW would have given you the answer.
