    I use brads fake the referrer cpa plugin, And I just got a message from one of my cpa managers saying that I need to clean up my redirect.

    I don't understand what she meant, But I was hoping that there is something out there that can let me see what the cpa networks see so that I can fix any holes in the redirect.


    Thanks:)

    Hi, I'm not sure if you know PHP but you could just put the following simple PHP code in a page and it will show you the referer when you click on a link

    PHP:
    <?php
    $ref 
    $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
    print 
    $ref;
    ?> Regards
    MDS

    Just take that code, plop it up on a webserver somewhere, and go visit the domain you pointed at it. It'll show you who your referrer is.

    point your redirect url at it in the cpa-r settings and then go to

    http://yoursite.com/blahblah-yourmagicwords

    if its working ok you can change it to your affililate link again

    I use http://my-i-p.com

    http fox Firefox plug in. Turn it on, load up your site. Then you go snoop through all the traffic in httpfox logs to see what's going on; including the referer.
