    Referal sites

    When I go through my awstats: Links from an external page (other web sites except search engines) and come across a link such as this http://www.gamesfreak.net/games/Ninja-Fight_12.html and go to the page I often can't see where on that page they are linked to me. In other words visitors to that page of gamesfreak.net are showing up as visiting my site but how can they be when there is no link to my site displayed. Well, none that I can find.

    I've wondered if gamefreak.net have got the game from my site and their visitors are playing the game at my sites bandwidth expense.

    Sometimes it helps to find your link if you go to the browser toolbar and click view, then page source. Once open you can do an edit>>find and search for your sites url.

    You should be able to find it that way..

    Hi Dick,

    I tried it with the link I posted in the first post but couldn't find it.

    here it is

    it looks like the link is the embedded game. Your site is acting like youtube; you host the content and others embed the game code so it plays on their site.

    Yep it uses your bandwidth, but in all fairness it looks like you provide the embed code on all your games. You get the link in return.

    That answers my question exactly, thanks

    I knew I provided the embed code but thought each game was supposed to display a howler.com text link. I thought they must have deliberately dumped the text link so i lost all benefit from allowing them to download the game from my site.

    It appears the way it's done, gamefreak.net visitors don't get to see anything to do with howler.com but bots see the link so that aids howler.com in se placement?

    I'm trying to figure out if that's a good deal or not.
