    If you purchase traffic from somewhere like maxvisits.com, it it possible to make the traffic look like it's coming from Google, Yahoo, Bing (and other search engines) on your Google Analytics? I have a WP site. I just want my Google Analytics to SHOW it's search engine traffic AND NOT COMING FROM A PAID TRAFFIC SITE.

    Possible?

    I'm not sure if it would work but you could have a php page that you push everything to and that page would use something like CURL to call the pages you wanted; With CURL you could set the http referer in the header information and the tracking analytics on the page you called might be able to track it as coming from a search engine. I have never done this, just a thought on how it might be done.

    Maxvisits->your redirect page that changes headers->the page you really want to serve up

    Suggestion above is doable but all referrers would come from same IP address.

    I am not sure as I never tried it. But I think it will be really tough. You might want to see some refferer cloaking I guess.

    This is a great way to spoof the headers! Why are you spoofing this? Can't deliver organic traffic?

    You have to put a doorway page with double meta refresh to do this. The question is will your traffic provider will approve the landing page or not.
