    Instead of blanking out referrer and looking suspicious, isnt it easy to setup a semi ok looking site.. Like a site with tons of banners & freebies..

    Then send users to a single HTTP refresh onwards to the advertiser.. so the advertiser will see http://www.YOURSITE.com/ as the referrer.. Looks a lot better and LESS suspicious..

    Not necessarily, Mp3Mage. If you back it up with the idea that its a "landing page" for your PPC campaigns, thats a legit setup. Especially since "certain" programs require that a person physically click intentionally on a link to go to their website as opposed to a redirect.

    For the OP - a landing page specifically for what you are pushing would be better than one with a bunch of freebies on it. Investing the time into setting up 1 domain + 1 landing page = 1 good reply for any referrer based questions no matter how much traffic you send. If its 1 page with bunches of offers, and you're sending a lot of traffic, your landing page will be suspicious as Mp3Mage suggests.

    well if its a landing page like say..

    http://www.freestuffleague.com/

    and you are sending like 500 hits/day to EACH Sponsor(so no sponsor ever get more than 500 hits)

    Doesnt it seem realistic that a page like that can send 500 hits?

    Also fuck PPC>. i just tell them i run that website and send traffic through there. there are 100000 offers that let u promote through banner/web... so wouldnt that qualify?

    Depends on the program. If the numbers dont match up they wont believe you.

    people do that, and they go a step further to fake it before hand through a gateway, then use a redirect if its from tht source to their target, and if not, just displays the site.

    best way to do it tbf, and its like 4 lines of code
