    I found this on my referral logs, any idea what it means, or what it implies. I'm certain my sites are up to par as far as following the TOS.

    Speaking of which, how does someone fake a referal? I've been noticing a lot of them in my logs recently.

    most likely its on an internal network, set up specifically for google employees, and not accessible for any old person on the internet.

    I found out what it was, nice theories everyone. It doesn't have to do with Google Adsense like I Initially thought. It is relating to my blogs at blogger, hence the admin_flags meaning the flag button on the blogger bar. I'm not sure why people would flag some of my blogs though, no spam and no objectionable content. I confirmed that it is from blogger though because that referral comes from this one IP which I checked other logs for that IP and I get similar admin stuff from .pyra files. These are dynamic web apps created by a company called pyra which inititally created google's Blogger. Bla197 is the admin, there were other admins as well. And that page is an intranet page or a web app that is only availible within a private network like google.

    Get me more info on faking the referrers as well, just curious how it is done.
