Protecting Your Website

Last Update: August 28, 2018

Protecting Your Website Content

I don’t know how many times I have been asked to take a looksee at WA members sites and found great sites with fantastic pics and images and the text content second to none.

Anyone browsing through these sites would soon realize that there has been a lot of hard work and effort put into creating them.

Do you know what’s not fantastic about all this creativity?

The owners of these great sites have missed out one very important component after they have built them.

They have not protected their work.

This means that anyone who has a mind to can come along, highlight any and all the text they want and use it for themselves. The same goes for any pics/images.

Of course you might be well pleased that someone likes what you have created so much they have copied it. Ok be pleased but why should someone else get the benefit of your hard work, and what’s more important. Why should they get paid for something that belongs to you and could have cost you many hours of blood, sweat and tears to create, and how do you stop this from happening?

The answer is simple. Protect your site, and to that end below are the instructions to do so.


In Wordpress go in to your Plugins section

Click on ADD NEW

Type in the search box - Wordpress Protection

You will get a choice

The first one is usually considered the best

I always use

Wordpress Protection Lite

Once you have your choice installed

Click on its Settings and

Tick or Untick the things you want or don't want the plugin to do

For example

No Right Click

No Copy and Paste

Once you're happy with it

Click Update

Go to your site and test it out and if it works then your site is now protected.

This protection will not affect any links you have on your pages/posts. You or your visitors will still be able to follow them.


Have an excellent day or evening people and leave a comment below to let me know that what I have said in this blog has not fallen on deaf ears.


If you have difficulty finding the plugin then here is the direct link to download it -

Hello Sheena. There is a lot of plagiarism on the internet and I'm afraid that includes within wealthy affiliate as well.
Some people are just so lazy that when they see an unprotected site with relevant content to their own - make no mistake - they will copy and have copied.
There have been quite a few members who have seen the exact content of their posts/pages on other member's sites and elsewhere on the internet.
You can be sure they protected them asap after that.
Thank you for your comment and enjoy your Sunday.

Hello Sheena. There are over 600,000 members here and people are people the world over so you will get good and bad and some are just out for what they can get and once they get it they disappear only to turn up somewhere else.
There have also been scammers who have slipped through the WA security by giving false info and limited info in their Bio.
Usually there is no personal pic either so you protect yourself at all times Sheena.
You know it makes sense.
Enjoy your Thursday anyway.

eenashay1985 Premium
awe thank you I did, well that sucks. I did add the plug in you have. At least I know it's safer now. Even that's not full proof. Someone could still type the info into their site just by looking at yours or having it open in another tab. My question is then who has the duplicate info according to servers?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hi Sheena. You will always have copyright and the search engines will always rank the earlier version as the original and any others as duplicate.
The way people get around it is to use an Article Spinner so best to protect your site so they can't copy and Spin.

Enjoy your Sunday.
Robert
Reply
eenashay1985 Premium
oh ok thank you so much for explaining this to me? Is there a way to tell if that has happened or if I somehow have duplicate content without knowing it?
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Very difficult to tell if an article has been through a spinner as it can be done several times so that it becomes unrecognisable from the original.
I'm afraid its a common practice and protecting you site is the only way to beat it.
Robert
Reply
eenashay1985 Premium
oh wow that's not good. So basicly if it's been through a spinner someone can then claim it as theirs since you can't recognize it and then you did the work and they got the easy way out.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Exactly - There are a lot of very lazy and devious people out there Sheena so protect your site ok.

Hello, Robert!
How do you feel if you help someone, and he's not taking into consideration your advice?
I often see great recommendations which are not followed.
You suggested someone to protect his content, and I was curious if he did it. The answer is he did not.
Though I'd like to thank you for that, it could benefit someone else, so it's not wasted time at all.
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hello Cristina. I'm afraid that sometimes good advice has fallen on deaf ears as they say.
But I'm a firm believer in personal choice and if someone decides against taking that advice then its their choice and they can't blame anyone else when they stumble and fall, and perhaps fall foul of internet scammers/fraudsters/plagiarists etc etc.
All my blogs are published to help everyone and not everyone follows my advice.

Hell mend them as my old mum would say and don't come running to me when you break your leg lol.

She has her old sayings lol.

Thank you for your comment and enjoy your Wednesday.

Actually, I didn't pay enough attention to this post as I was doing too many things at once. I was commenting on the part about "people not taking advice of others", BUT as I read and looked at my sites, I have WP Protection Pro installed, so I'm good to go. Never had ANY issues, so that's a good thing! Thanks for sharing.
As I recall, I found out about this 'TYPE" of plugin, right here at WA through this medium.

There is a lot plagiarism on the internet and I'm afraid this is so within WA as well.
People are people the world over and if they can get something for nothing then they will take it.

I have published over 150 blogs within WA on all aspects of affiliate/internet marketing so feel free to browse and I'm sure a newbie such as yourself will find lots of tips and advice to help you traverse this road they call the Internet Highway.
Have an excellent day wherever you are and drop me a line or two if you think I can help.

Your site is protected within WA but once you are out there on the internet and you have your own domain name you are fair game for anyone who wants to copy whatever you have on your site and with a wee bit of creative editing they can make it their own.

Plagiarism is rife on the internet so best to be safe now than sorry later.
Glad to point you in the right direction to prevent this happening.

Ooops . . . went to get the plugin and did not find "WordPress Protection Lite". Found "WordPress Protection" by eDarpan.com, however, that hasn't been updated in the last year. Is this the same one you are referencing?

Do you have good experience with them that the lack of a recent update would be OK?

Hello again Brian.
I installed it over a year ago and have never had any probs with it.
There are other plugins, so if you want to installl one of those then make sure its going to do what its supposed to.
It is a personal choice Brian and mine is Wordpress Protection Lite.
Other members have chosen a different one.

I have been told that this can affect your rankings in the search engines that that it is easy to get around in any case.....I had protection on my site and then took it off because of the things I read. So is it a good idea or not Robert.....conflicting advice around....
Reply
Robert-A Premium
Hello Kevin. Yes you're quite right there are conflicting opinions on whether you should or should not protect your site.

It is a personal choice and I advise people purely based on my own experience and that experience has shown me it has NOT had any effect on my sites or individual pages on the search engines and in fact I have close on a hundred individual pages in various categories listed on the first five pages of Google and Bing as well as hundreds of other lesser well known search engines all over the world.

There is one more thing you should know and that is your site is protected while you're within the Site Rubix platform but as soon as you have your own domain name and you are out there on the internet you are not protected and I don't care what anyone says to the contrary.

But as I said it is a personal choice. You do what you think is best for you.

Have a great day.
Robert

Thanks Robert....I think I would feel more comfortable with some copy-protection added...so I probably will re-install the plug-in....especially as it seems to be working for you.....

Hey Robert, I haven't done much "research" into this plugin, but do any of these plugins actually work? I've seen plenty ways to get around previous ones; from extensions in Google Chrome to just simply switching web browsers.
Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm here to learn as many others are too.

If you know your way around you can access virtually any page on the internet through the Page Source but as I said to other members why would you want to do that.

Great article Robert... I got here through a mention from a post done by LynneHuy this morning... Great article and as pointed out in her piece, I wish more people took the plagiarism thing from more seriously... It happens though and 's unfortunate...

I've used "Wordpress Protection Lite" in the past and you're right... it's a great choice... After having been hacked a couple of times, I've transitioned over to All In One Security, which also includes the same "No right Click" protection feature... AIOS is a lot heavier than "Wordpress Protection Lite" and people need to be careful as there are some settings that you just don;t want to mess with unless you know what you're doing or have someone who can help... But it also really helps keep my sites protected from a bunch of other "nefarious" types of activities also...

Just wanted to mention that if anyone is interested in alternatives... great article.... Bryan

Hello. Whatever works for you is always the best.
Why don't you type out your articles/blogs in WORD and use its Spelling/Grammar checker. Cuts out a lot of the hassle coz you just copy/paste it into your blank edit page in WP.

Hi Robert This sounds like a very very good idea, but I am a bit worried about the number of plugins I have on my site. Have you any thoughts about this? (I only have the basic plugins, Akismet, Childify Me, TweetPlusShare, Captcha, and a couple that escape me just now).
Reply

There are differences of opinion on what constitutes too many. I have 12 that I use and I have never had any trouble with them to date.
Then again you might add one more and start having a slow upload speed or other problems.
Theres two that you should try out though and one is for speed and the other is for optimizing your wordpress.
I can only advise trial and error.
Thank you for your comment and I do hope you go ahead nand protect your site.

I had heard that one problem of having more than about 5 plugins is that it harms your SEO. However, if you have 12 plugins and your site is ranking and OK then that sounds good to me. I never knew I needed to protect my site but now I do and I will protect it. Thank you Robert.

Hi Again. Thank you for getting back to me and good you're going to protect your site.
Of course you don't want to have loads of plugins that you don't really need but if a plugin helps then by all means use it and if others don't really do a lot for your site then of course get rid off them.
But the two I do use a lot are the optimizing one and the speed one.
Have a nice day.

Hello Alexandra. Glad I could help out and it does make sense to protect your work because there are a lot of lazy people who take short cuts and benefit from other people's efforts.
Have a nice day.

Good catch Robert. I've been using a plugin called "WP Content Copy Protection", which works very well, but can be a bit of a pain. It pretty much disables any effort to copy content, and as part of that effort, it disables any right clicking on the site.

Soooo, if I want to "inspect element" to chase after a CSS problem (or any of a number of other site maintenance tasks), I have to disable the plugin first. Perhaps it's time for a change...

No Probs. Whatever suits you is the best one for you to use. I use the one I mentioned and it hasn't let me down yet.

No point in letting all your hard work benefit someone else who's too lazy to do it themselves.

I've already had someone steal one of my posts, my best one in my opinion.
Listen to how I found out.. I had that Site Rubix website plugin on the page, the code given to me here at WA for the reader to enter the domain name they want to see if it's available. Well whoever it was that copied my post took out all of my affiliate links, of course, but left in the siterubix code, which had my WA affiliate link in it, which was masked through a Pretty Link. So every time someone visited that page on the other website, it showed up on my Pretty Link Hits, with the website URL. I was able to find out exactly who copied it and reposted it. Since then it's been deleted, or redirected somewhere else.
I've really considered putting that Siterubix code on every one of my posts, but your way would probably be easier.
Thanks Robert for this valuable information.
Angie.

Angie I personally know very little about codes of any kind so I find something that works for me and has a proven track record. So far the one I mentioned in my blog has not let me down.
Give it a try and you might find it works for you as well and if not there are a few others you can choose from.
Have a nice day/evening.

Jean I'm almost sure I told you how to do this a wee while ago or maybe it was something else entirely.
I'm getting on a bit now and the memory does tend to go as you get older lol.
Have a nice day or maybe evening over there in South Africa.
It is SA isn't it?
See the memory is definitely going lol.
