Hiding your affiliate links using redirects can not change whether or not your hoplink will be visible on the address bar after clicking because that is something that can be controlled by the merchant website only. There are merchant websites that do not show your affiliate links in the address bar and there are also those that do. It depends on the set up of the merchant website.
