What is a referrer URL?

The referrer URL is part of the HTTP header, and indicates the last page the user was on and clicked to visit the destination webpage. Most website analytics tools show the referrer URLs so that you know where your website visitors came from.

  • Google’s new referrer URL for Google Images will be https://images.google.com.
  • The new referer URL has the same country code top level domain (ccTLD) as the URL used for searching (for example images.google.co.uk).
