    search for "http referer" (yes, it's spelt wrong... thanks to no one actually checking that in the original spec).

    Google analytics provide all the information from where the visitor have navigated the site and helps the owners to get all the traffics details so that they can target accordingly.

    in Google analytic you can find "Real Time" option where you can get complete details about visitor such as location, Landing page, time duration etc.

    I know how I would do it, I would lookup your IP address from RIPE for example.

    When you click a link, your browser loads the web page you clicked and tells the website where you came from with the help of HTTP Referrer header field. Cookies and User Agents also help to identify and track the browsing activity.
