Various Services to Link Anonymously or Hide HTTP Referrers

hide mask urls domains anchors and link anonymously hide http referrals

If you have a website, blog or any webpage, there would be a certain situation when you need to link anonymously or hide hyper text link known as HTTP link. This is required when you want to link to any low quality site, affiliate, or even i||ega| sites without telling search engines. Yes, you guessed right nofollow or external attribution will not work here.  And also you don't want the content owner to whom you are linking. He will feel that visitors are direct or returning type :)


There are various technologies which are used to perform this task,  URL redirection simply doesn't work. It mainly incorporates Proxy, Meta Refresh, Javascript Location Replace, iFrame Parent Post and Flash getURL Function (Flash Action Script = VB script) etc. Let me stop some bak bak for now.

So today we are going to check some popular services which Hide HTTP referrals and Provide you a new link.
Note: Syntax is provided for advanced users. All services are available for normal users simply.



1. HideRefer.org



HideRefer.org has a simple homepage, will definitely hide the link referrers. In the URL field enter the link you want to hide referral. Pressing the button will provide you a Direct URL, HTML code, BBcode(buletin borad) for Forums. You can also use the syntax to use this service. HideRefer is the first site I started using a year ago.

syntax:
http://hiderefer.org/?URL
example:
http://hiderefer.org/?http://code.whitehatandroid.com

2. Referer.us





Just like the above Referer.us also provides the same services. It also acts as url shortener, it lets you choose custom anchor text. You can also select one of the many domains available, which you like. you can also include your custom domains for mapping. They also have a wordpress plugin which converts all outbound links into hidden alias.

Domain Names:
referer.us, access.im, asylum.name, cctv.ws, emap.ws, exel.us, freepl.us, ly9.net, mug.gs, owned.name, plugin.name, shortme.ws, yogift.us.
syntax:
