I use a META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="0 from site one to site 2. I don't get a refer from site one. I use traxis and Net tracker. What is the problem?

There is no standard action on that process. Some browsers pass the referrer, some don't, some will pass the first page, some will pass the "click" page.

just add this to that page that you want to send him from

<script language="javascript">
window.location.href = "site2"
</scipt>

If it is a proper new site
like if u r at yahoo and you wand to send to altavista the the link must contain the
"http://" with the url

if it is a internal page then there is no problem

That won't work, of course, if JavaScript is turned off. Whereas, the first one will. I don't see why you can't use both, though.

Exactly Xoc. That is an overlooked subtle option. Set the meta refresh a touch longer than you normally would. (say 15 seconds). Most se's will over look it if it is that long.

Thanks everyone. I want to try this but I have 3 questions.
1 Should the script be in the Head or the body?
2 Will the script open a new browser window? If not can it?

The script should be in the head. The script can open a separate window, but not with any of the techniques listed above. Try instead a window.open method. Find a site that opens an ad in a separate window when you visit the site for an example.
