How to get previous page URL using jQuery

jQuery code to get the previous page URL. The referrer property returns the URL of the document that loaded the current document.

$(document).ready(function() {
   var referrer =  document.referrer;
});

The referrer property is supported in all major browsers. But there is a problem here. It is quite possible that Page URL is shared through social media, email or accessed using direct link. So in that case, there is no referrer.

$(document).ready(function() {
  if(document.referrer.indexOf(window.location.hostname) != -1){
     var referrer =  document.referrer;
  }
});
