Decloaking Hazards - Why You Should Shun Caching Search Engines

Written by Ralph Tegtmeier and Dirk Brockhausen

Another company, Germany based brainbot technologies AG offers search engine technology for portals: < >

Brainbot robots are also spidering international domains: #UA gigabaz/3.14 (; #UA gigaBazV11.3;

One licensee making use of their cached results is geekbot: < > On their result pages you will find a "scan" function - this will display cached pages, albeit in a different format.

French search engine AntiSearch offers display of cached web pages, too: < >

AntiSearch operatesrepparttar following spiders: #UA antibot-V1.1/i586-linux-2.2 #UA antibot-V1.1/i586-linux-2.2 #UA antibot-V1.1/i586-linux-2.2 #UA antibot-V1.1/i586-linux-2.2 #UA antibot-V1.1/i586-linux-2.2

Finally, let's not forget German search engine Speedfind: < > Speedfind, too, offers display of cached pages.

Due torepparttar 128419 peculiar legal situation in Germany, which makes webmaster fully liable for links to third party pages unless they post an explicit disclaimer prominently on their site, Speedfind refuses all liability forrepparttar 128420 pages thus displayed:

"SPEEDFIND DOCUMENT FROM CACHE VIEWER SPEEDFIND is in no way liable for content displayed below. All rights belong torepparttar 128421 respective page's author. We are only displaying a copy of said page." (Translated from German)

So while they do acknowledge authors' full rights, same authors' permission for display of copyrighted content is never requested - there is no indication in their terms of submission how to prevent page caching.

Speedfind operatesrepparttar 128422 following spiders:

#UA visual ramBot xtreme 7.0 #UA speedfind ramBot xtreme 8.1 #UA speedfind ramBot xtreme 8.1 #UA visual ramBot xtreme 7.0 #UA visual ramBot xtreme 7.0

Rather than bother with minor players like Speedfind, AntiSearch and brainbot by excluding them from your submission process, you may want to consider blocking their spiders from access to your web site altogether (lest your competitors should submit your site behind your back!).

In this case, we would recommend using our fantomas multiBlocker(TM) for a professional blocker solution: < >

It pays to study the Search Engines

Admittedly we are operating on a limited search but oh, think of it! The implication is that whatever business related phrase or keyword that is typed into Lycos can be anticipated (think likerepparttar searcher thinks - not like you think) and we will be atrepparttar 128418 top ofrepparttar 128419 list.

Imagine you had a yellow pages and everytime you opened it there you were - atrepparttar 128420 top ofrepparttar 128421 left hand page - bold and proud - how would that affect your web site traffic.

There are 2.3 billion web sites out there right now competing for your customers and ... well you may love your site, you may be certain that you have something of significant value to offer your visitors but ... unless you studyrepparttar 128422 search engines and understand them all you will have is your heart and soul inrepparttar 128423 middle of a mass of mediocrity that everyone has to plough through before they get to you.

Two other quick tips

Make your and great because some of<IMG height=12 src="/the2.jpg" alt="repparttar 128424"> engines, Excite for example, will move you up<IMG height=12 src="/the2.jpg" alt="repparttar 128425"> listings based on 'click throughs' in other words if you are number 5 and searchers keep clicking on your site as opposed to number 4 your site will move up, and they will move down, that's why we're at number 3 on Excite for 'Business Start Up'.<p>Check your spelling.<IMG height=12 src="/the2.jpg" alt="repparttar 128426"> UK's number one producer of car valeting products is at number 35 on Google because their web designer can't spell 'valeting' he, or she, spells it 'veleting' - easily done but it's so common it's almost laughable - look up Barnaly, instead of Barnsley and see what I mean.<p> <br><img src="images/ata.gif"><br> <p>John Saxon is a grandfather of 3 and Technical Director of Fastlink Solutions Limited.
