    Hey!

    I just wanted to know if there was a way you could fake a referrer, through something in the URL or Script or something?

    So, make it look as though the referrer was a different site? I know how to hide the referrer, but was just wondering whether this was possible?

    Thanks for all your help!
    Lynn.

    The reason behind it was I'm trying to use PTC Traffic to boost Alexa Rankings, with a site that uses AdSense.

    Even though I could hide the referrer, it would be something special if I could fake it lol ...

    Do you have any more info on the tool available here? Would be great if you could shed some light.

    Thanks!
    Lynn.

    fake referrer?

    depends what you want exactly. watching sites with bots it's possible.use curl and u can setup what you want to referer. it's easy cuz it's simulate the browser

    make fake referer to real visitors.. for example adsense... adsense use javascript which run client side and bring the referer data from users browser.. this is a hard case but ofcourse it's possible...

    A fake referrer comes only to spam the websites. It is very difficult to identify him I believe.

    Hey thanks for the answer!

    So, do you know if cURL can be used to manipulate a browsers settings for referrers or something? I thought it was just used to download stuff from URLs lol ... I'm not a php expert, but I will definitely look into this further!

    Thanks!!!
