I'm pretty sure this can only be controlled at the browser or server level, not at the website level. If you have access to your server, I think you can turn off referrals. Don't quote me on that though.

It is a client-side feature. E.g. with Firefox there is a preference in "about:config" called network.http.sendRefererHeader ( see [mozilla.org ] )

Since you said "other websites," I'm thinking maybe you don't want your own website showing up as a referrer in the logs of others?
If so, you can run outbound clicks through a redirect someplace. (and then it will still show a referrer, but the referrer won't be your site.)

Forgive my curiosity, I'm probably missing something here.
If some site gets traffic via links on my site, I WANT the other site to know it.
The target site might be encouraged to link back.
Why would you want to keep your referrals confidential? -Larry

Larry, the reason why one would want to prevent their site from being shown as a referrer is off topic. I'm just looking for a solution. Feel free to post the question in another thread.
As far as a solution goes, I was hoping not to have to do a redirect. I was hoping there'd be a way to implement a solution on the server level, or through a script that modifies the headers being sent or something.
Thanks for the responses so far.
