I have a script on a page at the second level of my site. My web stats infallibly show the referrer of the hit as the front page of my site. I want to show the referrer of this referrer, ie. where the hit came from before that.

Will the following constructs work:
document.referrer.referrer
document.history.previous.referrer

Thanks,
Rafi

document.referrer is not a document object but a string object.

history is readonly and only has the methods back(), forward() and go().

so: document.referrer.refferer and document.histroy.previous.refferer won't work!

If you want to know the refferer of the refferer then you should pass this value form your first page to your second

e.g.:

function go( url )
{
 window.location.href = url + "?ref=" + escape(document.refferer);
}

<a href="javascript:go('second.html');"> .... </a>
