Its always a good idea to know where your new members are coming from. The issue is that people are lazy and don't always take the time to tell you. The net result is you get no data, thin data or incorrect data on this.
With the Lead Pages on PushPress we do everything we can to ensure the best possible chance of effortlessly getting this accurate.
How the 'Referred by' field automagically works
We know the page they just came from, so if we detect it was from a link you posted on your Facebook page we will automatically change that selection to 'Facebook'. Same thing if they came from a Google search.
If we detect they came from a link that is not Facebook or Google we will assume its 'Other' and populate the the input box with the site they came from.
