glossary definition:=Referee is a program that reads your web server logs and crawls your referrers (the links that point to your pages) and extract metadata from those pages and text around the links that pointed to your pages.

What can I do with this?

Ever wondered who links to your pages and what they say about them? Ever thought that trackback might be missing something? Ever subscribed an ego feed and hated the fact that the same stuff keeps coming up over and over like it was new? Ever hated those referrer spammers that pollute your autotrackback scripts?

If so, look no further: Referee can help.
