I think I know what you mean. Portal-type and search providers often
have HTTP servers meant for logging and redirecting clicks on search
results. Spammers and similar ppl who wish to hide the real destination
of a URL abuse these services. It can be quite hard to prevent this
You'd have a URL something like
I choose not to share any information on abusing these services, not
because it's particularly secret, but because I don't really want to
share it with kiddiez who don't already know how to find this information.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
