    I would like to know the best way to protect Clickbank ebook downloads without using DLGuard etc. and finding it on Google or Alexa.


    Someone posted these instructions.



    Add a folder named download with a blank index file and then make a funny name for the download page inside the download folder. This will prevent the page / file from being indexed or found. You could also add things like if referrer=clickbank/paypal etc display download page else 404 error.

    Add the "No Follow, No Index" tag in the head of your thankyou page.

    Use .htaccess to prevent hotliking of files. But allow only files to be downloaded IN YOUR domain.
    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?mydomain.com/.*$ [NC]
    RewriteRule \.(pdf)$ - [F]
    
    REMEMBER TO CHANGE mydomain to your domain name.


    Use Clickbank Lock Pro V2 to "hide" your download link so that purchasers won't be able to distribute your thankyou link.
    You can get it for free here:
    hxxp://www(.)ziddu(.)com/download/5382254/44-clickbanklockpro(.)zip(.)html

    Create a robots.txt file to prevent robots crawling your .pdfs files.
    Code:
    User-agent: * 
    Disallow: /*.PDF$

    Your Clickbank product should be 99% safe now.

    P.S: Your thankyou.html need not be named as "Thankyou"... you can give really weird names like "524asdzsre35.html". Clickbank will accept it.

    Hey Blackseng
    Thanks for taking time to explain in detail for me
    Unfortunately the Clickbank Lock Pro 2 free download link you provided has an error?
    Forget that I just saw the encrypted URL

    Could you recommend a good cheap host for Clickbank possible traffic and to do the above tech stuff?

    Hey Therookie,

    I'm using hostmonster and it's really good. Their service is excellent. Their forum support is great.
    It's just $5.95 per month. Down from $6.95.

    Code:
    [URL="http://hiderefer.org/?http://www.thepanicattacksolution.com/"]http://hiderefer.org/?[/URL][URL]http://www.hostmonster.com/track/hostmonster_page[/URL]
    Yes, that's REFERRAL link of mine - please do sign up from there - there won't be extra cost.. but i get commission from your referral - it's a good way to thank me too ;)

    non-referral link: http://hiderefer.org/?http://www.HostMonster.com =(

    Just a thought and by no means do I have any technical knowledge of how to do this (if it can be done with CB )....But could you not somehow send the download link to their email. Would that not avoid the spiders from crawling the page and indexing?
    I have ordered a few things that came like that and seems like a perfect conduit for building a list.
    I mean subsequent emails like!... Did you receive the product in a timely fashion?.....Are you happy with the product? ....Any suggestions to improve the product?.....Oh by the way if you liked that then you'l just love this product that you'll have to whip out your credit card for!

    Just a thought for ya my friend.

    Oh yes, jdog.

    But I prefer asking clients to download from my website. Because when you've implemented the htaccess code, no one can download your file unless he/she is in your domain.

    Another good tip will be.. add a "rel=nofollow" in your download link.

    Well, if you've followed my method in protecting your CB product... your actual thankyou page will be cloaked or hidden once your client has paid for it.

    So once you've protected your thankyou page with Clickbank Lock Pro.. the clients will only see this URL: "www.example.com/cb_thankyou.php"

    If your client tries to be funny and pass this url to someone else and they access it, they will receive the following message: "FRAUD DETECTED" - it's a feature from Clickbank Lock Pro.

    But there are times clients are smart.. once they are at your thankyou page, they will just hover their mouse over your download link to your pdf and distribute this url to others in the internet.

    But because you've implemented the htaccess code, hotlinking is NOT allowed. So they will only see a "FORBIDDEN 401" page when they try to click it.
    The HTaccess code only allows people to download when they are in your domain.

    Remember to add that META tag ("No Follow, No Index") in your thankyou page. This will also prevent search engines from indexing your actual download or thankyou page.

    Lastly, what I meant by that "rel=nofollow" is... implement that to your download link.
    i.e.: <a href="www. example .com/yourbook.pdf" rel="nofollow">

    This will prevent your direct download link from being indexed. Although I know that META tag would prevent search engine from indexing already... it's better to be safe than sorry.




    It's not recommended to send an e-mail with your download link in it. Sometimes clients could just forward this e-mail to others and they could download your product for free.
