    My first post here. Nice to be a part of the community.

    As you all know, there are a lot of different SEO-software and WSO´s out there. In my opinion, most of the things offered are crap. The developer or the marketer creates a thread and pay people money (or start a number of low post accounts) to give themselves good reviews. However, some times you find stuff that are potentially interesting.

    This is a way to get those things for free. The method is really easy but it doesn´t work every time of course. Someone might have posted it before here since it´s an old method but it still often works.

    The secret is to check the robots.txt file. The proper way to cloak purchase-sites (where you can download the product) is to disallow the indexing of a folder and after that name the purchase-site something obscure like blablabla421.html and put it inside the cloaked folder.

    However, a lot of sites do this instead.

    User-agent: **
    Disallow: /purchased/thankyouhereyoucandownload . html

    When we access the robots.txt file we will easily see the site where the product download link is located, in this case /purchased/thankyouhereyoucandownload.html.

    By using a proxy ( I guess most of you know how to do this in your browser ) you can just access that page and download the product.

    As I said, it doesn´t work every time but quite often.

    I am not allowed to pust URL:s but I guess most of you know how to access the robots.txt-file. If you don´t, I am sure someone else can explain it here.

    The smart ones hide the thank you page in a folder and put only that in robots.txt. ;)

    completely true, now for the other side of things, you guys would have known this, if you have a product on the market someone in CB or somewhere else.

    make sure that you guys check YOUR robots.txt file and fix it if it somehow links back to your product. not only if this used for avoiding payment for a product towards others, but towards you as well. you wouldn't want people stealing your ebook, or pdf, or program would you ?


    P.S. good first post OP
