    Can anyone help me to protect my landing pages? I pay lp designers and after 2-3 days my competition simply steal my lp probably with hrack or with source... what can I do to make them unable to steal it? Thanks in advance.

    What do you mean? How can someone steal your Landing Page? Do you mean the design (HTML/CSS Templates)?
    You canĀ“t protect your website, everyone can allways take a look at the source code and download the page with the browser.

    There is no way to protect a design, and it's even easy to copy and paste it; life is tough yes.

    There are plenty of ways to protect your landing page.

    I will admit it's harder to protect desktop landing pages but mobile is pretty easy.

    I'm with TavaX on this one. The idea that someone can't recreate something they can see is pretty silly. In my own approaches to LP development I have used both straight-up siterips as well as photoshop mock-ups and redesigns. So for clarity here - no there is no way to protect your sites from being ripped off. It's not hard to recreate a site even from the ground up as long as you know:

    1. What it looks like.
    2. How it functions.

    This might require some interesting skillsets if its only one person ripping and recreating sites, but most people use softwares and/or collaboration. In the past I've even outsourced site ripping in pieces when I was neither a coder or a designer. Anything one person or team can make - another person or team can decompile and rebuild.

    Thinking otherwise is really silly. One might be able to HIDE their LP from known bad-guys or cloak it and such, but if I was ripping your site and you subsequently prevented me from accessing it via htaccess or some other restriction, i'd just move to a new device and IP and get what I needed anyway. So I'm saying ... you can't really hide something from someone who knows exactly what they are looking for. OP needs to price in this information to reduce cost per LP outsourced and/or increase the rate of new LP production to avoid campaign cost increases.

    I would figure out how long it takes these bozos to rip the sites, and start buying them on that schedule. To me it seems that once they grab onto your LPs ... your ROI must start to decrease very rapidly.

    An alternative approach is to target traffic more heavily up-front. That way you burn through more traffic before the bad guys come and rip your site LP. By increasing your budgets you may recover a larger portion of the front-end revenue before the diminishing marginal returns set in from your LP being all over the place.

    Hope it makes sense!

    Can you tell us some ways? @88optic
    The majority of people that rip my pages are script kiddies who only know ctrl a ctrl s....

    There's a blackhat script that allows you to send some of the traffic to your own affiliate links when someone steals or scrapes your LP.

    It's available on 1 membership site I know but I'm sure you can get one coded for cheaper.

    I'm pretty sure this is not possible in many case. If the "stealer" host the page on his own server you won't be able to hijack anything. Or I didnt understand you.

    A lot of people who scrape landing pages (especially people involved with media buys) never really edit the LP itself. They just switch their affiliate links to theirs.

    There's hidden code inside that will execute if it's not deleted by the person who scraped it.

    Obviously this is helpful if OP knows for a fact that it is a straight rip being made. As you said some people don't change out all the code - they just swap out affiliate links, or more accurately their script does that. You can recapture some lost revenue this way, but a big problem remains ... how effective that LP might be in some niches after it is hyper-exposed due to someone else running dozens or more duplicate campaigns.

    It's still a good tool to have in the arsenal. Thanks for suggesting it.
