Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I need to redirect a page to a partner website, but I don't want to give them any stats/referrer information. I tried a 302 redirect, but it seems to still pass along the information. Any tips?
For example... domain.com/redirect/
All I want them to see is the redirect URL domain.com/redirect/ - not which page etc.. it came from on my website. Basically...I just don't want to give them a bunch of data they could use for their benefit.
So, I'm not suggesting anything, I'm stating a fact... Redirects don't "hide" a referrer.
note: bots typically ignore META REFRESH tags.
You can't modify it either since the browser supplies it -- to do that, you would have to proxy the request, ie: make the request yourself on behalf of the initial browser (setting your own referral tag), and then return the response.
