How do I get the url to stay the same when using a redirect script?

I can tell you already that if they put a link on their site, to my redirect script with one of their own urls in it it will simply go to my page but it will be blank, and no redirect will occur (as the php code will make sure the script dies as the HTTP referrer was not true).
But that's not taking into account them spoofing the HTTP referrer - but could they do that for a link? (ie fool the search engines into spoofing the HTTP referrer too?) I wouldn't have thought so?
Re stats - as per the test above, it will simply show an external site went to that page (but the crucial thing is that page didn't do any redirecting - again this is not taking into account spoofing).
Am I on the right track? Do you still want me to check the stats?
