web page's code will prevent the search engines
from placing your download page into their records:
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW">
I'm no programming guru (nor do I wish to be)
but this will eliminate 80% of freebie seekers
who use the search function site: url
Also, another tip I found out totally by accident
is to use caps when you name your html files.
Some people recommend putting this as your
download page: u9r3hibvkhbsdcbvlkjbfkrv.html
which although is almost impossible to guess, it
might leave an unprofessional feel to customers.
However, for most browsers (at least, to my
knowledge), anything after the .com is case
Meaning... if your download page is:
Anything after the .com is case sensitive,
at least I believe so.
Naturally, don't use anything easy to guess
like downloadpage, thankyou, access, members,
Oh yes, don't even use oto1, oto as your
one time offer pages as they could eventually
link to the product download pages.
Of course, there's a ton of other ways to
protect your download pages but in my
opinion, if anyone's starting out and is relatively
new in the I.M./Make Money field, this one
line of code is more than sufficient.
Don't spend all the money buying expensive
software if you don't even have something
to protect in the first place... my $0.02
Hope this has been helpful.
