How to mess with spammers for SEO and profit
In today’s digital age, websites are bomarded with people trying to hack,spam,bruteforce their way into your websites. These threats not only harm the website’s reputation but also compromise the security of the user’s personal data. It is essential for website owners to take appropriate measures to protect their sites and users.
One of the most common ways to deal with spamming and hacking attempts is to implement robust security measures such as firewalls, SSL certificates, and regular software updates. Other measures include monitoring the website’s traffic, using anti-spam plugins, and limiting the number of login attempts.
Instead of doing it that way why not take advantage of these people for SEO, profit and fun?
For instance maybe you have someone who is trying to crawl your website excessively. Instead of rate limiting them and sending 403 status codes, try doing an HTTP redirect to google with some keywords that will benefit your site. E.g. if you have a site that sells golf shoes at golfshoes.com redirect them to google with the keyword: “best site to buy golf shoes golfshoes.com”.
Don’t do it excessively though! You want to make them confused! Try doing it 60% of the time:
if random.random() > 0.6:
Maybe they still dont get your message? Try redirecting them to a different set of sites so that they get the message:
if random.random() > 0.6: list_of_websites = [ 'https://www.pornhub.com/gayporn', 'https://gaymaletube.com/', 'https://xhamster.com/gay', 'https://redtube.com/gay', 'https://www.gayporn.fm/', 'https://www.gaytube.com/', 'https://www.gayboystube.com/', 'https://www.gayforit.eu/', 'https://www.gayporn.com/', ] return HttpResponseRedirect(random.choice(list_of_websites))
