Looking for script that creates list of referrers

P: n/a
I've been looking for a script that will create a real-time list of
'top referrers', similar to the links to sites you see on the left of
the page at http://www.linkswarm.com. They also have a page
http://www.linkswarm.com/referrers/referrers.php which shows all
referrers.

I'm assuming you'd be able to set filters. There is no signup
required, you just link to the site and your site appears in the
referrers list, but as a webmaster, you wouldn't want to include
search engines for example.

I would be careful with such things. The referrer-header is unreliable
and could be abused for spamming. Would you like to see porn sites as
top referrers on your site? It's quite easy to do, the spammer just has
to send some dozen requests to your site with a faked referrer-header to
shoot up to the top of your list.

Do you think these are real referrers? Do you want such things on your
site?

Log analyzer programs give you a list of top referrers, show you
keywords typed, etc. So I would say you are going to reinvent the
wheel, where log analyzers give you that and a whole lot more. I
don’t have specific recommendations, but there are some good ones out
there.
