Referals Question

If site A links to Site B using target="_blank" to open a new window for
site B when the link is clicked, will site A still be the HTTP REFERRER, and
will it still then show up in the website logs for site B as a referrer?

What about if JavaScript was used to open the new window?

In general, yes, yes and (probably) yes. But you shouldn't depend on this
because some browsers allow you to disable this information. Referrer
headers are also disabled when linking from secure pages.

These headers are also easily faked, so be careful!
