Can they see the referrer for the page their ad is on?

    Home Page:
    I have a text ad I'm displaying, and the code they give me includes a tracking pixel (this is through CJ). Can they see where my referrer is coming from based on the tracking pixel? I mean obviously when you click the ad it goes to the offer, but if I was doing some BH stuff and set up a cloaked redirect, do I want it to do:

    [BH link] -> [legit landing page] -> [legit landing page 2 (link is here)] -> [offer]

    or is it ok to do:

    [BH link] -> [legit landing page (link is here)] -> [offer]

    The first combination would be if they could see what the referring page was to the page that displays the ad. The second would be if they can only see the referrer from the offer itself.

    Also, whatever the answer is, does this apply when using a network-hosted banner?

    Well, i had the same question and as i was told by everyone, the second one shall be okay.

    Like they would see your site as reffering one not the one from where your site gets the traffic.
