Is there ANY way to know if a user, coming from an arbitrary site, to my site, clicked a link/ad/image/whatever, OR was redirected by JS?

In short, is there anyway to detect that a user was JS redirected to your site?
Example would be redirecting users to amazon, which is no longer allowed. Can they detect it, if its a 1 second delayed redirect?

AFAIK, whether they click or you window.open or redirect they should not be able to tell, provided you don't give them any overt clues.

You have to manipulate the window.history object
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/DOM/window.history
You can not manipulate directly
"There is no way to clear the session history or to disable the back/forward navigation from unprivileged code. The closest available solution is the location.replace() method, which replaces the current item of the session history with the provided URL."

All of my cloaking used to be done with JS. And all of my tracking was also done with JS Smiley I used to use that method to kill the current page.
It all depends on what lengths Amazon is going to go to detect this.
Theoretically they could load a JS into their site. They could then yank out the history object and pass it to their server.
I did manage to catch a google manual check that way Wink

I don't know if this might help you, but have you try Feedjit , this one can monitor your traffic and every visits from their location to the sites where they have click your site.
