    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to work out the double meta refresh for a cpa poll. where do i put the files with the meta refresh code? is this on a different domain or are they on the same domain as the cpa poll domain? can the cpa sponsor see the referrer of the second meta refresh?

    so does it look like this:

    http://www.polldomain.com/poll.htm <-my poll on my domain
    http://www.polldomain.com/meta-refresh-1.htm <-my meta refresh 1 on my domain
    http://www.polldomain.com/meta-refresh-2.htm <-my meta refresh 2 on my domain
    http://www.cpa-program-page.com <-cpa sponsor

    thanks!

    On poll.htm, you call meta-refresh-1.htm which then calls meta-refresh-2.htm which then forwards to your cpa. On meta-refresh-2.htm, make sure you double check the http referer is blank before proceeding as some escapes this.

    actually the important thing is to check and ensure the referer is blank.. that's the main reason why we use a double meta refresh. I'm wondering whether a check is in place in your coding..

    Okay, so here's a dumb question: how does one ensure that the referrer is blank?

    Most everything I've read on BHW so far makes complete sense to me, but evidently there are a few gaping holes in the foundation of my knowledge.
