Folks who run web sites and have access to their server statistics can view a list of other sites who've linked to them. This is called a list of referrers (referring links). You can usually click over to see referrer's site, to check out how they've linked to you. Over the last couple of years, I've noticed some referrer site weren't actually linking to my site at all. Instead, the sites were advertising services that might be of interest to webmasters. These days, the situation is getting worse, and a handful of porn and other sites are sneaking into my referrer lists. Wired News reports on what marketing companies are calling "Referral Marketing."

In an iffy but effective publicity stunt, PS2 publisher Acclaim offered to refund the fines of speeding drivers caught by traffic cameras on Wednesday. Needless to say, the Department of Transport (Britain?) was a little upset: "Basically they are encouraging people to speed and to break the law. I just hope for their sakes that none of these people ends up knocking down a child." [source]
