I am working with a simple website that people use to cloak/hide their referrer, similar to blankreferrer.com and nullrefer.com. This site gets about 100,000 unique visitors per day, but has $0 revenue.
When users cloak a link with this service, the following happens:
1) They can put this new link anywhere.
2) When the link gets clicked, they are redirected to the website, where a banner is displayed and a 3 second countdown timer.
3) When the timer drops to 0 seconds, they are redirected to the target link with no http referrer. Therefore, according to the target link's Analytics will show it was a "Direct" visitor as opposed to someone who came from xyz.com.
Does anyone have a great idea on how to monetize such a site? Hosting it is getting very expensive, especially when no revenues are coming in.
