    Hi guys, I would like to ask if multiple PBNs have the same htaccess code to block bots, is it a potential footprints?

    Or is Google able to find out that the PBNs is using the same htaccess code?

    Thank you!

    The only way to know the exact content of an htaccess file is to have access to the server, btw if you have access to the main server configuration file you should use it instead of using htaccess this will increase your performances and it's the recommanded way to do it. (only use htaccess when you can't edit the config yourself)

    Your htaccess should not be served by apache. Its a configuration file so Google (and anyone else) can't see it. Of were talking URL structures, you could mix them up a bit /post becomes /articles or /story etc.
