When your readers follow links from your blog, the linked site can see where they come from. Thus; your blog is known by every site you’ve ever linked to.
WP-HideRefer adds proxies to your outgoing links, keeping your site private!
There are many plugins to anonymize links. What makes WP-HideRefer better is:
- it’s 100% WordPress API compliant
- therefore; supports infinite-scroll (AJAX / streaming)
- it correctly filters your feeds and comments
- it can handle your manually anonymized links!
(Please note that WP-HideRefer requires PHP 5 or newer.)
