First I'll just say the site statistics module from Ibdeeming is awsome for snooping out snoops

I found this on Digital Point forum

Here was thier conversation.Do the experts have anything to say about this?I guess i'm curious myself to the question and being as XOOPS is awsome they deserve an educated answer No? Well other than 10,000 xoopers cant be wrong hehe.So what say ye?


Link Exchange with PHP redirects - SE friendly?

Hello - someone asked me for a link exchange today, I did it, and submitted the code. The links are in the form of:
http://northernmichiganupdate.com/mo...ink.php?lid=35
- this is what my link's url looks like before it redirects to my site.
Initially, too, they didn't put the title I requested as hypertext (they put it in after I requested they do so again). Question - what is the specific impact, if any, of php redirects such as these and SEs?
Thanks.
Edited to add I don't suspect foul play - the site ranks linked sites by outgoing clicks. But I still have a concern on PHP redirects and SEs, re: 301's, etc.

Not worth of bother.

Some of the usual tricks are:
1) search engine unfriendly links (eg. php redirects as above)
2) links page that is intentionally not indexed, and never will be
3) no followed links
4) temporary links, that get removed after some time, hoping that webmasters don't check regularly whether link is still in place

northpointaiki
I have read these aren't always unfriendly, but usually are. If the redirect is set up as a permanent one, then, I've read, it's not a problem. But I am getting a general case of a big "No." Anyone else?

Links of that nature can be actually be harmful.
http://clsc.net/research/google-302-page-hijack.htm
explains problems with 302 redirects, but the url you mention outputs 200 status codes. Recently, I have found several hijacks that output 200 status codes, and another member of this forum pointed out one to me that he said was a 303 redirect -http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=45363 - and running the url you mention through several server header checkers (http://www.searchengineworld.com/cgi...ervercheck.cgi is a good one) it output 200 status codes.
You should avoid dynamic links such as these because the search engines have problems handling them.

On this same site, in order to register, you are required to go inside zonealarms and disable third party cookie blocking, and disallow the "remove header option." You are also told to do a host of other things which, in my view, compromised security.
I would like this link removed from their site. Any suggestions?

If you want your link removed, then contact them. A redirect link is rarely a good one, I never even bother when I see them


northpointaiki
Mdvaldosta - I should have said, are there means to compel someone to remove a link if you ask and they have refused?

Send them a link to this thread, and to this thread. Be courteous, explain that XOOPS has problems, and mention this search:http://www.google.com/search?q=xoops+redirect+hijack. Ask them to remove your link for these reasons. Suggest they change strategies, as the complaints can be bad publicity.

It seems this site is brand new, and has not had a chance to fully develop the redirect hijack problem.
But once you know that the webmaster has been informed, that the redirect hijack is actually happening, and the webmaster has refused your polite requests, many hosts and access providers are receptive to a similar email and can apply pressure that you cannot.

Here's one of the '200 status code' problems I have been looking at - search on Google for traby club romania. Not too hard to figure out who is getting hijacked, or finding the page the site is listed on.

And try it out on BigDaddy, the test d/c's that is supposed to fix these problems.



My reply so far:
I'll Check into that

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll ask about this on the XOOPS forum and see what they say.
I thought you asked to be removed because of my news section.

I'll let yas know what the cms experts have to say


krauh

I removed the link as soon as i recieved his email requesting it.Not like it was on a porn site

tried this one?
http://www.cskillzone.clanservers.com/modules/system/admin.php?fct=preferences&op=showmod&mod=1&confcat_id=1


nevermind i dunno what the link is in your version of XOOPS 2.0.13.1

I lost control of admin once by leaving an open java tag open in the footer area in preferences luckily I had another copy of XOOPS installed in a subdomain so i could find the link i needed to change the java tag i left open in the footer area in preferences.

I found out you need to add the above code to your theme.html not the header.php

and on Herves site I found a button to add your backend to google homepages thru fusion.google I just added the code to my footer in preferences

<a href="http://fusion.google.com/add?feedurl=http%3A//yoursite.com/backend.php"><img src="http://buttons.googlesyndication.com/fusion/add.gif" width="104" height="17" border="0" alt="Add to Google"></a>


This will work for now till I learn a better way.
Thanks for help

If anyone knows any other easy tricks post it

try this module for the album once you get preferences set right it works pretty good.You don't need a bunch of server side stuff installed and adding a forum module is pretty simple

I tried to add it to my personal google page by typing in the url/backend.php but it says it didn't match any feeds

so i found where it said to put that code into my header but I'm not sure exactly where or how to include it so it will find my feed via the google feedcatcher crawler.I tried what it said but i put it in the header.php file and my site got a white page.I guess I'm confused by the placement of the code and is that where i want to have it.

I tried to add it in the haeder.php at the bottom before the ?> and I then got a white out when trying to visit my site.

I noticed when adding other codes they sometime have include or /include once then some code when adding to php files.So I'm thinkin i need to do something like this but I'm not a programmer and What kinda effect it will cause scares me

heres the page that you get from the bot visiting youhttp://www.google.com/feedfetcher.html
and when you start reading you end up here at #16
http://www.google.com/webmasters/bot.html#autodiscovery

Just a matter of how and where to make it work for me and the rest of us newbs.

Where to I add this or and how?
When i try i get a really clean white website

So can ya help me?

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Your Feed Title" href="http://www.example.com/rss.xml" />


This is from google:

How do I add my feed to the search results for Google's personalized homepage and Google Reader?

The feeds that Googlebot crawls appear in the search results for Google's personalized homepage and Google Reader. To ensure that your feed is part of this index, add a <link> tag to the header of your webpage to enable feed autodiscovery. There are a lot of variations on <link> tags for this purpose, but below are a couple simple examples.

For an Atom feed:
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Your Feed Title" href="http://www.example.com/atom.xml" />



For an RSS feed:
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="Your Feed Title" href="http://www.example.com/rss.xml" />


any help much appreciated

I changed the code to
]<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="My site" href="http://my site/backend.php" />


and put it before the ?> at the bottom of my header.php

*note don't do that*

So what do i need to do?
