Anonymize external WordPress links


I’ve developed this plugin to easily add href.li¬†functionality to your WordPress site.

You can use this plugin to prevent your site from appearing in the server logs of referred pages as a referrer. The operators of the referred pages cannot see where their visitors come from any more.

Wikipedia on referrer hiding:

Most web servers maintain logs of all traffic, and record the HTTP referrer sent by the web browser for each request. This raises a number of privacy concerns, and as a result, a number of systems to prevent web servers being sent the real referring URL have been developed

For example, this plugin will automatically convert external links to this format https://href.li/?http://example.com.

This is an anonymous link to example.com which prevents the original site from appearing as a referrer in the log files of the referred page.

You can also choose to exclude keywords & domains in the settings of the plugin.
