We have a few partners who have contributed prizes to our contest. When they promote it to twitter or their mailing list, we would like to track them as a reference.
We can do this by entering them into the contest, and then sending their referral link - but this messes up our statistics. For instance we did this for ourselves, and we now lead all other entries.
But, in particular, when we go to Analytics, then people who joined because of our own promotions are counted as viral. But they are not viral at all - because they came from our mailing list.
What we would like is a way to add a reference which will show up on the leader board, etc. but which is not a viral referral. We would kie several of these for various partners.
