P'nawn da all,
a historic thing happened today. I received a webshots guestbook entry!
Of all of the thousands of hits on my webshots pages, only one person has
ever left a guestbook entry. Do the other webshotters find the same?
It seems that webshot lurking affects a higher proportion of folk than NG
Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now
Twelve guestbook entries in 141,000+ hits.
Tell you a strange thing, my three albums of pictures of the Anson museum
have attracted 5,182 hits as of today. I've just checked their website and
its had 6,117 hits.
Shove over Geoff, I'm catching you fast!! ;o))
Be careful, stats are not always what they seem to be. It is possible
that people could be hot linking to some images. Depending on the
format of the stats you should be able to see exactly what is going on.
If there are forums shown among the referrers there would be good reason
to suspect that something fishy is going on. Given that it is a free
service the only issue might be the misuse/theft of your copyright
Where you are paying for hosting, hotlinking (bandwidth theft) can
become a huge problem. With my sites it became such an issue that I am
having to implement methods to stop it, as with many things, such
methods are a compromise. This link:
is a test
page where I have hotlinked to an image from one of my sites using an
image from another one of my sites on a different server. It is worth
taking a look at it, if for the only reason it will give you a good idea
if your browser is giving out any information. If you see an Allis
Chalmers tractor your browser is very secure and is not giving out the
information required for the protection, if you the see an anti
copyright/bandwidth theft logo your browser is giving out sufficient
information for the htaccess protection file to work.
