    Hey guys,

    i am using a regional traffic source and I keep getting this referer location in my tracking platform: file:///Applications/Install/907BF5F2-A2B7-4654-9BD5-DD2A65B649A2

    Does anyone know what type of traffic this is?

    You try googling?

    Looks like a mobile windows app referral. Candy Hero Story | Store Applications+Jeux Windows Phone (Belgique)
    windowsphone.com/fr-be/store/app/candy-hero-story/907bf5f2-a2b7-4654-9bd5-dd2a65b649a2

    Thanks for your traffic source.

    If I say that I am using a regional traffic source and I am getting a REFERER with location: XXXX
    that doesn't tell you my traffic source; that just tells you where an impression came from. I think you're a little confused.


    Thanks for helping me find what it was.;)

    welcome..,,

    I'm not confused about referrals and traffic sources.. Why would people cloak referrals data??? maybe to hide their traffic sources?

    So I may have went over board about traffic source.
    but in this case, people can now target that game/app as a source of traffic, If any.
