Did I successfully fake my referrer or did I fail?

    I'm worried that I didn't fake my referrer properly. I need some help understanding this.

    So there were 2 pages:
    1. page1.html (the page I don't want the advertiser/network to see). This page linked to page2.html with a normal HTML link.
    2. page2.html (which redirects to my offer link). I used the second example (Billy/Peter) on this page.

    So it went like this:
    page1.html to page2.html to offer link to offer landing page


    What will the advertiser/network see as the referrer?
    Will it show page1.html in the referrer (this is what I want hidden)? Or will it just show page2.html?


    Did I fake my referrer properly?

    If you want to last a lot longer make some fake landing page that links to an optin form that you claim the traffic came from after a subscriber verified his email on the confirmation page.
