    If I have an IFrame on a blackhat site, and that IFrame is grabbing a page off of my whitehat site where I have an IFrame of an Ad*brite ad, if people click on the ad on my blackhat site which site will Ad*brite see as the referrer?

    If people click on the ad on your BH site, Ad*brite should see the WH site as the referrer. I just tested the scenario that you described using 3 of my own sites, and the site in the inner iframe will see the site in the outer iframe as the referrer, not the original site (the BH site, in your case).

    Thanks, I thought that was the case but wanted to be sure. I'm going to have to test this out with my Ad*brite account and see if they catch on or not...

    Anyone had success doing this?
