    Really you should search the forum for this..

    Try this for example

    Code:

    When someone visits a website, their browser passes along an "http referrer" which says which website the visitor is coming from.

    For example:
    I am at example.com, I click a link to go to anotherexample.com.
    anotherexample.com will receive a referrer that says example.com

    Blanking the referrer makes it so the browser passes along no referrer.

    we use black referrer to hide our source traffic , is that right ?

    is this work for blank referrer ?

    Bad traffic to ==== > www.domainname.com/red.htm

    source code of HTML is a Javascript redirect to our Affiliate link

    and Affiliate Network will see only www.domainname.com/red.htm as a referrer not the Bad Traffic

    is it right ?

    Correct, that would change the ref. But don't use a javascript redirect, use a meta refresh, because if the person doesn't have javascript enabled, they won't redirect.

    To blank to referrer, you would use a double meta refresh.

    DMR:
    send traffic to domainname.com/red.htm
    red.htm meta refreshes to domainname.com/red2.htm
    red2.htm refreshes to the offer.
    Then your ref will pass blank 99% of the time, but some browsers will still pass the real ref
    To be 100% sure, use php to check that the ref is blank before it redirects to the destination.

    I'm launching a service that does this and a bunch of other things automaticly. Its being beta tested right now, but it should launch by the end of this month.
