Experimenting with the Referrer System

· Weblog Concepts

Following my usual scattershot process of trying out multiple methods for doing the same thing and then sometimes randomly stopping when something works well enough, I dropped by Stephen’s Web today and have added the code for his hosted referrer-listing system. I may install the backend code myself, but I don’t mind filtering my referrers through his host as an experiment.
Installing the tool seems to be simply a mater of adding

<script language="Javascript" src="http://www.downes.ca/referrers.js"></script>

to my home template.
We’ll see how it works. I still haven’t got metalinker working right and I haven’t even tried to install Textism’s Refer tool yet.
