Google Analytics is very useful, but it doesn’t have the ability to show you the exact referrer visitors are coming from. The downside of this is that sometimes you can get a huge influx of traffic from a large site like Yahoo and still have no idea where the traffic is coming from. Because of this it is recommended that you have some other type of logging enabled. At the minimum, access to raw log files will let you go in and see the specific page that is sending you traffic.

Actually it does. In the Traffic Sources > Referring Sites report you can drill down to see the referring pages and you can also use Referral Path in Custom Reports.
Thanks Andrew! I’ll give that a try.
