    First off, I have done my best to put this post in the right section. I have tried asking this question here before but nobody has ever answered my question. I tried searching the forums and Google for this info, but no luck so maybe you can help me.

    Basically I want to use Iframe for 2 ways.

    One - To forward and mask a domain name to a CPA offer. This will allow my to advertise my domain and make make it look like the offer's landing page is on my domain name. You can either do this using services like godaddy or you can easily set this up using a index page.

    Two- to run an iframe on my website using a 1x1 pixel that will stuff a user with my affiliate link. this will make it so that even someone does not click on my banner on my website, they will still be purchasing the product using my affiliate code.

    OK - SO HERE IS MY PROBLEM

    The iframe souce url for both scenarios above is going to be a double meta refreshed link using tracking software. Therefore the referrer information for the iframe source should be my hosted tracking solution. I have set it up and it works perfect with FireFox and Google Chrome ect. The referrer information for the link that is loaded up in the Iframe shows my tracking software url (perfect).

    However, Internet Explorer (Im using IE7) shows the referrer as the parent page where the iframe is located rather that the tracking software url. (when i say parent page i mean - i have websiteA with iframe with the url source is websiteB which refreshes to websiteC and then refreshes to websiteD.

    So with firefox, chrome and opera, the referrer the affiliate sees is websiteD. With IE7, the referrer is the websiteA where the iframe exist.

    Why is this happening? It is really starting to piss me off. Can anyone give me a solution on how to fix this? I would really really appreciate it.

    Nope. Not using any programs. I use prosper202 for tracking and I use the cloaking on.

    Even if you do a godaddy domain forward and mask using a cloaked affiliate link, that is using iframe. in IE7, the source url for the iframe source should not show the Parent (main website where the iframe resides on) as the referrer.

    Just a followup, nobody helped me, but IE8 does not expose the parent frame and fixes the problem. According to hxxp://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp , ie7 is still a big player so keep in mind any kind of iframed projects that you do, your parent page which will be exposed as the refferer.
