    Hmmm.
    I noticed exactly that. I use DMR for my iframed CPA offer. Internet Explorer users are unable to view it.

    Wouldn't you stay under the radar better by faking the referrer, rather than blanking it?

    So... Do you think I should go with blanking or faking the referrer? This is for an iframed CPA offer of mine.

    Internet explorer users cannot view DMR iframe.
    However, according to you, javascript must be enabled for faking the referrer. Do more people have firefox, or do more people have javascript enabled? I guess it comes down to the matter of that.

    Which should I use?

    EDIT: I will test your blank referrer v2.0

    Hopefully all will go well ^_^.

    Well it depends on what kind of traffic your affiliate wants you to send and how you are really sending it. Like if they do not allow on-site traffic then blank it. If they allow on-site traffic then I would use both methods to throw them off a bit.

    Javascript can be disabled or prompted on all browsers so it just depends... I think you will get more to pass with a DMR as opposed to a fake referer.

    There are other methods than get/javascript but that one works the best.
