Webmasters can use this tool to prevent their site from appearing in the server logs of
referred pages as referrer. The operators of the referred pages cannot see where their
visitors come from any more.
Using the referrer removal service is quite easy:
http://no-refer.com/?http://www.google.com/ produces an anonymous link to google.com which prevents the original site from appearing as a referrer in the logfiles of the referred page.
Once the script is embedded in a website, it redirects all the links via No refer
- except for the sites that were excluded when generating the script. In vBulletin, for
example, you can include the script code in the footer of the global templates
(Styles&Templates - Global templates - Footer). In Wordpress, use the footer.php.
Since the script can only anonymize links that have already been loaded at runtime, it"s a good idea to place the code as close to the end as possible. Otherwise, links that appear after the script code would not be redirected via no refer.
No refer only disguises what page a visitor comes from.
