    Hey guys,

    I have disabled bots by using .htaccess

    but i still get regular emails from magento developers badgering on and on about getting some business. seriously i hate this shit, i seem to become disposable to my boss due to this shit.

    how can i hide my site, so nobody can find out that we are using magento. it seems we are being targetted by some kind of script that scans the interwebs for magento stores.. any1 know how they are doing it.. more importantly how can we stop being discovered?

    our whole store is anti google as we don't want google up our ass. we keep our payment gateway and store seperate and unsearchable, but yes there are buy links from our other sites that point visitors here to complete the purchase..

    please suggest me something

    thanks

    One way to obfuscate Magento is to modify some of the site structure.

    For example try these search queries in Google as they return primarily Magento sites.

    Code:
    inurl:customer/account/login/
    inurl:catalog/seo_sitemap/category/
    
    Another solution (probably simpler since your site is already deployed) would be to write a script which filters out job request emails going to your Boss. :)
