    Is it possible to fake the referrer / referral of a site you don't own?

    For instance...

    you own SITE A
    you're sending traffic from SITE B
    (for all traffic you send from SITE B) you want an external SITE C to show up as the referrer / referral, BUT you do not own this website.

    If it is, PLEASE can someone direct me in the direction of where to find a script that can accomplish this?

    you need access to the site you want as the referrer in order to make that work.

    Hello.

    I'm not sure how true this is, but I hear that browsers are dropping referrer altogether.

    Has anyone else hear this?
