    Is spoofing the referrer (not faking with redirects or anything) illegal?

    haha instead of making redirect scripts across a bunch of bh blogs and etc that i've put together, i was kinda hopin to just spoof the referrer and only need one script. that would also make randomizing the referrers for the bh traffic easier.

    any input is appreciated

    you need to use a server side language like php. using curl() you can send headers that are usually unique to browsers like referer and etc.

    haha a fun lil fact, is that referer is a misspelling of referrer. a lot of languages actually have referrer spelled referer like in php lol

    haha alrighty thanks man. im not too worried about being banned by the cpa company. i mean they come as they go. most of them don't look below the surface enough to catch a faked or spoofed referrer as long as there's not weird patterns in the data anyway.

    thanks!

    dude ..THIS WONT WORK

    and as a programmer as you probably are you should realize why...
    CURL grabs / posts from your server, hence your server ip, the reason we fake referrers because the person doing the survey etc is using his own ip for it hence the framing... but if you go using curl it will use your servers ip and you will be instantly caught

    ok you could use a rotating proxy list with curl maybe, but then if your gonna attempt to do that and hope they dont catch the use of proxies, you mise as well just do the offers yourself and skip out on the visitors at all but youll still be caught because of proxy's leaking etc.
