    I'm thinking what if I pay someone to get me a viral firefox plugin, and as a side effect of the plugin, whenever someone browses the web if they're referral is blank, or they don't work with CSRF simply the header would get injected with a website I specify.

    So basically he starts surfing the web. With no referrer and no POST vars his referrer gets injected with www.some-porn-site.com. The webmasters of the websites this guy surf later check on analytics and see that www.some-porn-site.com sent 1000 hits, enough to get him to check the website (www.some-porn-site.com)

    What you think?

    Been discussed several times. The plugin is really not even needed... Search for "curious webmaster method"

    The problem would be: not getting banned from the firefox extension site.
