What exactly is a blank referrer and how do you do it?

A blank referrer is a visit that didn't generate from a link on some other website, for example if you search on google and click on a link, the referrer will be google.com and the same applies for any other website, but when you enter the link directly and navigate that's a blank referrer, for example I get a blank referrer because my link is in my GUI.

I think you can also use URL shorteners like bit.ly

black referrer means or they opened ur site in a new tab, like copy paste the link. or they got redirected from a site that deletes the referrer.
Basically it's the website before they got on yours

Let's say I do this;
File they want needs password.
I make a Pastebin post that says you can get the password from here and put the locked link in it.
And since they can't click links in a Pastebin post since they aren't hyperlinked(I don't think), and they have to copy and paste it in the address bar, does that mean it's a blank refer?

No, it just means that the refer will be the last place the traffic has just visited or came from. In order to blank the refer, the source of the traffic literally needs to be scrubbed away, using code. It's best to use a source like bit/ly, a wp plugin, or your own code to do this consistently, because each web browser acts differently according to individual settings and the make.

Yes if they copy and paste the link it's a blank referrer.

the most simple way on how to hide refer link is to use blankrefer.com. its pretty much plug and play or try to google "blank refer"
