    Hi, I've a problem. I want to change the referer of my visits. For example, if someone arrives to my website from popcash, I want to look that visitor comes from Facebook. Is this posible?

    Thanks

    No, you can't fake it to a domain which you don't control (like Facebook).

    That's different, you said visitor came from PopAds. That means you are not able to control client (visitor's browser)
    Hitleap is a client and you've full control - so you'll be able to do it.

    You will need a redirect in between.

    Visitor from Popads >> To your redirect script (this script change your HTTP_REFERRER) >> redirect towards your landing page.

    If you are using PHP then it would be similar to:

    <?php
    $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERRER'] = 'http://facebook.com';
    ?>

    Faking the referrer is possible when applying each of the following (however, each has its own disadvantage)
    1. you can use cURL (PHP) to send request to a remote server/website and fetch the website content, something like:

    $ch = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://www.afflink.com/');
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_REFERER, 'http://www.fake-referrer.com');
    $html = curl_exec($ch);

    However, applying this method, the IP (server) will always be the same, so you would get busted easily

    2. using a JS self form submit followed by a JS redirect or a meta-refresh. This wont leak the server IP, but, it adds an extra client-side redirect which is slower, and leaks the page url that initiates the JS form submit. You can look for a plugin named: CPA Redirector which does this form of referrer faking.

    Good Luck

    1. One will get busted and his server's IP will end up in abuse list.

    2. It's already been shared here before, no need to reinvent wheel:
