IP Delivery For Sploggers: How To Prevent People Hijacking Your Feeds

There is a great post over at hackers.org detailing how to stop content thieves republishing your blog.

Of all the sites in the world to steal, some idiot “repurposes” a hackers site. Result: the thief gets some content he certainly wasn’t expecting. Hilarity ensues.

SEO blackhat also offers a simple IP delivery method.

“you just need to add these 3 lines of code to your .htaccess files.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^69.16.226.12
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://newfeedurl.com/feed

Where 69.16.226.12= the IP address you want to send to and http://newfeedurl.com/feed is the custom content you want to send them.”

IP delivery certainly has its uses, and this time it’s got nothing to do with the search engines. Use wisely :)
