Wrong referer URL in downloads stats
06/05/2018 11:36 AM

Question

In my download stats, I see that many referral URLs are coming from my own site:

/b2b364fh1k8x/filename.html

Answer

This usually means one of the following:

1. This download is coming from your own site rather than from external site
2. The user had copy-pasted the link in browser's URL input instead of following it on external site
3. The user is using an anonymizer browser or tool (for example, Tor browser)
4. The user had followed the link with 'no-ref' option (especially if he's coming from DataLife Engine CMS)
5. The user had followed plain HTTP link on HTTPS site.
