    It depends how you're trying to access the target site. What's the context here?

    If you're trying send real traffic from siteA to siteB and have siteB see the referer as siteC (without having access to siteC), the the short answer is that it can't be done with any modern browser.

    You can fake the referer for an access to siteB from a script running on your server (using CURL in PHP for example), but although the target site will see the referer as whatever you want, it will see all those accesses coming from your server IP, not the surfer's IP. You could run through a proxy list to vary the source IP, but at best that's gonna give you a limited range of IPs and most of them can easily be identified as proxy traffic by siteB. It all depends on what you're trying to achieve and how much checking the target site is doing.

    You could do some really interesting stuff if you can convince the surfer to run a signed Java applet on your page, but as far as I'm aware there is no way you can do that silently (i.e. without the surfer having to explicity allow the applet to run) and even then, if you want the surfer to end up on siteB, there are problems. Again, it depends on what you want to achieve and how much checking siteB is doing.

    I don't really think you want to use a third party site to fake the referrer! I mean you use a site that you own so you can put up your affiliate links so it looks like the traffic is coming from the adverts on your referrer site and not from the blackhat one.

    If your AM looks at your traffic they're going to go to the referrer site. They'll quickly notice that your affiliate link aren't anywhere on the site. The AM will say, Hmm I wonder how the traffic is coming from a site that doesn't have any links for our CPA on it? Oh wait! He's faking the referrer!

    In other words, your better off not faking anything or maybe even blanking the referrer. I don't know about you, but I think I would be curious to know how a site with no links to the CPA is sending 1k traffic a day to the offer!

    Just take the 5 mins and $2 it takes to set it all up, it should be worth it!

    That will only work if you have access to both sites. (And if you have access to both sites there are way simpler ways to do this).

    x-bassist doesn't have access to the site he wants as the referrer.

    Okay..i got it what you want...i think you want to spoof your aff or whatever by changing the referrer.

    Here is my idea.

    1) List the referrers you want to send in a excel or csv file and have it in your server.
    2) Use your own tracking url for the links you want to spoof.
    3) write a code to send duplicate referrers instead of real ones that is on the csv file.
    4) tracking code helps to change the referrers from your end.

    Let me know if this finds you helpful.

    pinging the site may work for some sites while other sites won't.

    Hi there i really need your help if you could.I have listen to you and got the CPA Redirector v2 standalone version. But now my problem is this.

    Traffic source is as follows: facebook>blackhat site>whitehat site>cpa offer page.
    What i have done is: in whitehat site,uploaded the cpa script with following details...

    <?php

    //Settings

    $magic_number = 2424; // Any number you choose except ZERO!

    $cpa_offer_url = 'http://mycpaoffersurl.com/';

    $red_method = 2; // 0 = JS Form, 1 = JS, 2 = Meta Refresh

    $form_method = 0; // 0 = POST, 1 = GET


    //Don't edit below this line unless you know what you are doing.

    but when i click at blackhat site i end up at whitehat site.
    Link at blackhat site is for example: http://www.abc.com/?mn=2424 and i end up at whitehat site which is http://www.cba.com but not redirected to the cpa offer url.

    What have i done wrong? what i want is traffic to go to blackhat site and than to cpa offer url .And i want the cpa network to see my refer as my whitehat site. Please help me..i've spent hours doing this.

    @godspeed1208 -

    Change

    Code:
    $red_method = 2; // 0 = JS Form, 1 = JS, 2 = Meta Refresh
    
    $form_method = 0; // 0 = POST, 1 = GET
    
    to

    Code:
    $red_method = 0; // 0 = JS Form, 1 = JS, 2 = Meta Refresh
    
    $form_method = 0; // 0 = POST, 1 = GET
    
    and test that out...

    Just a note, look for CPAR 2.1...you won't have to deal with this anymore...
