Links with noreferrer attribute on community.atlassian.com prevents tracking


#1

We’d like to be able to track the amount of customers coming from topics on community.atlassian.com. Although we have the ability to track our customers via the Google Analytics ID provided with the addon details, we’re not able to see referrers from community.atlassian.com since all links there are using the “noreferrer” attribute.

What’s the reason to add the noreferrer attribute to all links at community.atlassian.com? Would it be possible for Atlassian to remove the noreferrer attribute in certain cases, e.g. for any links referring to marketplace.atlassian.com?

Interesting question, and given your references I’m not sure this is intentional - presumably this is best asked in the community’s own Feedback & Announcements category though?!

Thanks, great idea! I posted the question there as well, will keep this thread updated if I get an answer.
