    Ahh, I've been scouring google for the last half an hour trying to find a way to redirect someone while showing the referer.

    Can it be done?

    What I want is someone to go to site 1 (could be any site), then they click a link that sends them to site 2 where they are redirected straight away to site 3. I want site 2 to show as the referer.

    Can anyone help?

    This would only be possible using an iframe ... I think that is how offercloak does it as well ..

    Bummer, I thought that might be the case.

    All well, thanks for telling me.

    it should be possible to rewrite the http header as a user passes through the redirect so that the referrer gets forwarded.

    The referer is a read only property that can't by modified by tampering with the http header ..

    Great minds think alike. This is my whining thread I started yesterday
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cookie-stuffing/17564-need-help-cashcorps-htaccess-method-cs.html

    Where I'm also stuck though is that if I do this with myspace, the cookie ain't gettin' stuffed with this method.
