I am using below setup:
Squid proxy 3.5.4.
CentOS 7.1

I am trying to analyze the most used websites by the users via Squid proxy.
I just require the first GET request for that particular browsed page page
& not the proceeding GETs of that same page.

1) user enters *http://google.com <http://google.com>* in client (mozilla)
2) client gets page containing some other urls
3) client initiates multiple GETs for same requested page without users

I myself tried a logic where I assumed if "Referer" header is present, then
its not the first GET but a proceeding one for same requested page.

I know i cant rely on "Referer" header to be always present as its not
mandatory. But
I want to know if my logic is correct? & also if there's any alternative
