Many Internet Marketing beginners are not aware that there are hackers, hi-jackers and thieves who have hundreds of ways of stealing your downloads. If you are planning on marketing down-loadable products from your own host, then you must have a download protector script installed on your website.
It has been estimated that over half of all ebooks and tekken games free download software in use are stolen copies, with a large proportion of these being stolen directly from the thank you page. The problem can become very serious if a search engine picks up the link, making it accessible to anyone doing a search for your product. Search engines robots often ignore the “no follow” command on the meta tags of your download page, even if you put them there. If someone is searching for your product, they could find your download page if the search engine robots picked it up. You would then hardly ever make a sale.
Another way to lose profits, is that your download links can be passed to others allowing them access to your downloads without paying for them. That is why it is important to have a time limit or download limit set on your digital downloads. You set the limit long enough for the customer to download the product, or a few attempts to download in case there are problems like accidentally closing the page,. Then it expires so no one else has time to get in and download without paying. The download time can also be set to 4-5 minutes, or a few more minutes if it is a very long download. For instance videos, and audios. But it should not be set for long enough for someone to email the download page to someone else to get at.
Some download protector scripts create protected secure links through several payment processors. Your download is protected in the PayPal link through the IPN system which make it almost impossible to hack. You can also use Clickbank as a payment processor with protected links using the ClickBank Secret Key System. Some scripts even allow payment protected links through 2Checkout and other payment alternatives.
The download protection script needs to be installed on your web host. If you feel you are not up to it, then for a few dollars you can have the script installed for you. It will more than pay for itself shortly by what it will save you in stolen products and profits.
