    I had an issue with site rippers on the last subscription based landing page I built. Since then I decided to encrypt my code weeding out the newbs trying to rip my site. If I were to optimize my site with SEO would G bots, etc... be able to detect my content?

    I can choose which parts of the code get encrypted. I leave a small portion open so my replicator can read the [variable-here] code to autofill the subscribers information.

    Here is my site:

    If you are going to encrypt, just encrypt the forms etc. I highly doubt that search engines can read encrypted code, after all they're bots and you are trying to prevent bots aren't you? Only encrypt the critical parts.

    If you just want to get rid of the noobs then remove all the names from the input elements of the form, then add them at the bottom of the page with javascript.
