Stop giving away your work for free and discover how you can easily protect your pdfs, mp3s and more....
From: Ken Sar Re: Easy Protected Links
Dear WordPress Website Manager,
How many times have you found your hard work freely available all over the Internet in the form of downloadable pdfs, mp3s, videos, and more? If you've been creating products for any length of time at all, chances are it's happened more than once.
Illegal file sharing sites
Black hat forums
So-called search engines that provide links to pdf files
All of these types of sites and more are earning money with your hard work, and until now there's been no easy way to stop it.
Sure, you can install a shopping cart or membership plugin to control downloads, but the cost and maintenance is a headache, and for low cost products it may not be worth it.
Instead, what most website owners end up doing is cobbling together a "work around" that looks something like this...
Plugins to hide the download pages from Google
Robots.txt code to hide the folders and files from Google
.htaccess code to prevent "directory browsing" by the casual visitor
Sitemap updates to prevent your 404 pages from accidentally revealing the location of your downloads
...and on and on.
And even with all that, you'll still find that...
Search Engines and Others are Sharing the Links to Your Downloads
The truth is, the only way to truly prevent file sharing is to upload your precious files to a secured Amazon S3 server, then create an expiring link.
Here's what that will do for your valuable files:
Prevent Google from finding them - the search engines do not search Amazon servers
Prevent legitimate (and even well-meaning) buyers from sharing the link - because expiring links are just that - they stop working after a period of time
Prevent those who have the link from browsing through the rest of your files just to see what else might be available
With those three pieces in place, you'll prevent 99% of the illegal file sharing that is costing you money.
Of course, if it were as easy as all that, you could stop reading right here. But while it's a simple (and inexpensive) thing to get an S3 account and upload your files, most people stop there and simply set their S3 buckets to "public"
which allows everyone to download the files as long as they have a link.
Expiring links are different, but...
If You Don't Know php, Creating an Expiring Link is Overwhelming
At their core, expiring links are quite simple. You set your bucket permissions to "private" and then generate a link that grants the user's web browser access to the content for a set number of minutes.
It's genius, really. You don't have to have a membership script. You don't have to mess around with robots.txt files and arcane .htaccess rules. The web browser does all the work for you.
All you have to do is write about 50 lines of php code and add it to your WordPress theme files.
Yeah. I didn't want to do that either, so I found a better solution...
