Default HTTP_REFERER Tester Sometimes Redirects OK Visitor

I use the following ASP code in pages of my site to redirect visitors to the main page of the site if they did not come from a link:

If(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")="") Then
Response.Redirect ""
End If

The problem is that sometimes legitimate visitors to the pages (e.g. from a link) get redirected to the main page.

I don't understand why. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
