What does "Referers" mean


Forgive me for the seemingly simple question but, What exactly does REFERER mean in Cloudflare Analytics?

Is that a site that outbound traffic from my infrastructure? Meaning my infrastructure calling that site/API?

Or is REFERER an inbound traffic to my infrastructure?


It’s inbound traffic from a link. So if a visitor to example.com clicks a link to your site there, the request will include a Referer header saying they came via example.com.
