What’s the best tool to hide your referral URL?
Affiliates and 3rd party advertisers are (and should be) fearful that an end advertiser will find their ads/referral domain and cut them out.
You can use tools like Voluum for $99/month, but even their double meta refresh doesn’t work well. If you’re sending high volume, a percentage of your URL referrals are going to get passed through to the advertiser. I’ve spent half of today looking for a solution..
Long story short, Filefizz.com works
My process: I used Google.com as my end-domain and plugged it into each masking site. Once a cloaked URL was created I pasted it into wheregoes.com to see where the trace finishes.
- Cloaked URL leads to Google.com = Fail
- Cloaked URL leads to masking domain = Success
Below are my findings.
#1.) Nullrefer = Fail
#2.) href.li = Fail
#3.) HideRefer = Fail
#4.) Filefizz.com = Winner
Hopefully I’ve saved people some time :)
