The internet marketing industry is now flooded with various page and portal generators.
In good old days gateway page generators did very well, earning a lot of money for many people.
Then search engines began to crack down on robot-generated pages, a trend which has led to demise of such tools.
But how is it that search engines are able to track down these sites so fast?
Well, its not rocket science. Believe me, even you could track down a site within minutes if you knew how to find its fingerprint.
A fingerprint for a site is usually a piece of text or a paragraph or at times a particular CSS style that software repeats for all sites it generates.
In fact that's why I always advise customers of my portal generation software Niche Portal Builder to modify default templates.
If you use such software with default templates provided and don't modify HTML, you can be sure that hundreds of others are doing same thing.
All it takes is one jealous competitor to complain to Google. And, BAM!.. your site gets banned.
