    Is there a way to put a networks content locker on illegal content, but fake the referrer so that it seems like the traffic is coming from a white hat site of yours, such as giving away a free ebook?

    It wouldn't be recommended. If you use a self-hosted locker solution then yes, it's a good idea, and if you search my username you'll see I posted the script to do it.
    However, if using a Network's locker then the Network knows exactly where the locker is being called from (i.e. displayed), and there is nothing you can change on the referers which would make them "not see" that site, unless you "iframe" the locker in some way. This would involve having BH site B, and WH site W, then placing the locker on WH site W, and, on BH site B you would iframe site W's content, and, finally, in the locker, you'd need to spoof referrers for every link (again, the Network will probably be able to "see" that you are spoofing refs on the links, though).

    Best advice...choose a self-hosted solution if you want to spoof.

    oh yes, OP is talking about a content locker provided by a CPA network.. i misread that..

    in that case, the network will still see where you use the locker so the spoofing will not be effective.. use a custom content locker if you want to totally hide yourself

    You can use a free TDS to fake a referrer

    Is there any custom content lockers you would recommend? Prefably free, or obtainable? :D
