    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me either a good free website tracking program which can display the exact referral url of a website or a hack that actually works in Google Analytics to make it display the exact referring URL of the incoming traffic.

    Any suggestions appreciated,

    Thanks.

    Here's the resources for you:

    To find the referrer in javascript, use the following:
    Code:
    document.referrer
    In Analytics, here's how to add custom variables to track:

    Here is another example of a person using custom variables:
