When it comes to your website, the information, data and concepts as well as the visualization of you site is supposed to be 100% yours. But unfortunately, there is a predator out there today. These predators use software called a site scrapper to crawl your website like a robot and save all of it.
What does this mean to you?
Well that's simple; every thing that you have been working hard on to make your website uniquely yours has just been stolen by a website predator. There are ways of dealing with this so that you will not have this problem in the future.
How does it work?
If you were to view the source there would just be a bunch of useless characters. This will prevent site scrappers from being able to steal your web site. This is also great to protect your shopping carts, emails or anything else you need protected on your site.
Sure, this encryption can be hacked, but that requires a bit of effort. The thief wants to put forth no effort that is why they are stealing your site. Last thing they want to do is to convert the code back to a comprehensible form so they can modify it as their own.
