    What is noreferrer?

    The noreferrer keyword tells the browser to not collect HTTP referrer information when the link is followed (e.g. when a human clicks on the link).

    Should it be there?
    Maybe, maybe not..

    Why use it?
    Let’s say you have a link that points to Google.com. You put it on your homepage.

    Now you don’t want Google.com to know that people or bots that clicked on or followed the link, were coming from your homepage or site.

    So for that reason, you could add rel="noreferrer" to the link, like so:

    <a href="https://www.google.com" rel="noreferrer">Go to Google.com</a>

    Hope that helps.
