    That link is not working. Did you change the settings and provide the statcounter link to your public stats - not just the link to that page?

    The public stats link would look like this:

    my.statcounter.com/project/standard/stats.php?project_id=XXXXXX&guest=1

    I was wrong. It is certainly in your stats as a referrer.

    You did not fake anything. Thanks for sharing the stat link!


    Not to burst your bubble, but it looks like it is just a bot using fake/spoofed referrer. Looking at that visitor they are using Aopa as their ISP and this IP 208.27.40.35. I am not all that sophisticated with this stuff so I really don't know what it is.

    Really ?
    If that was so easy try opening the referring url and do that again.
    Its impossible to fake as the site does not even open up for us.
    Maybe its open just to people in the whitehouse.

    Btw I am removing the public stats for now.

    No, you don't. There is no referrer carried in the headers in such a case.

    As one person said, it's just referrer spoofing. A number of people browse while spoofing their referrer in order to increase traffic to their websites (people go "hey, why's that site sending me traffic?" and click on it) or to gain extra low quality backlinks (sites with publicly accessible and g-crawled stats pages)
