    Default Detect search engine referer

    we have a number of banners and links on search engines like Lycos and Altavista, etc. Is there a way to determine what gateway they are coming from. when someone comes into our website from a banner on Altavista we need to acknowledge the altavista user plus assign a source code (IAVBAN for Altavista; ILYCOS for Lycos, etc. ) then we want to pass this source code transparently to the order form if the user orders something on our site. have been searching relentlessly for something like this online. no luck yet. thanks.

    You could just put a little snippet of code on the page that people link to that grabs the HTTP_REFERER header field. Something like this:<BR><BR>linkedSite = Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")
