Some call it Pay For Rank, others: Performance-based SEO – Unlike most Expert SEO Companies we don’t charge ranking fees until your website’s position actually improves. We also don’t sell you packages that don’t do squad to get your website rank higher. Yes, I am talking about those bronze, silver ,gold – 50,100,200 back links packages – as if the quantity was a major factor… what about quality? Better yet, what about the results? RESULTS – RESULTS – RESULTS – this is what you deserve to get for your hard earned money- THE RESULTS. So, next time your SEO guy gives you back link statistics in exchange for cash, do yourself a big favor and ask him how did those links help you rank better. America is still a great country-why would you want to pay for a mere promise of future results when all my customers pay only after they see improved results? Do you really like to gamble, pay upfront ranking fees and wait for months and months to find out the are no results?

Want to know how this blog went from over 130K global alexa rank to bellow 70K ( global ) in 5

months and then accelerated from there to bellow 8000 global rank in less than 1 year? Read

on…

Background

 

Alexa.com is a service from Amazon that aims to collect information about websites, and one of the things they do is rank websites based on traffic. For

example, they maintain a

Global Top 500 Websites list as well as tracking the numerical ranking of individual websites.

Thе Rub

Unfortunately, the way they do these rankings isn’t terribly scientific. Alexa provides a toolbar plugin for web browsers…once installed, it tracks the

websites you visit and reports that information back to Alexa. The issue with this is that the people that are likely to download the Alexa toolbar aren’t

representative of the “average web user”. Because Alexa is focused on topics like site rankings, web site information, search engine optimization, etc, the

people that install the toolbar tend to be webmasters and other people deeply involved in the technical side of websites such as seo experts. These people

tend to visit websites that are in that particular niche, creating a very skewed view of site rankings. Websites that draw a highly technical audience float to

the top of Alexa, websites that address a different audience sink in the ratings. Of course, for highly popular websites that get visited by everyone,

the effect isn’t as pronounced. A couple of examples of this are pretty easy to find.

This post from

bigoakinc.com does a great job of showing why their web site is “overrated” by Alexa, because it is centered around Internet Marketing topics. Since that

article was written, the skew has only gotten worse. Bigoakinc.com is currently ranked at 66,129 in Alexa while a really high traffic site, fulltiltpoker.net is

ranked at 124,852. Quantcast.com, who use a different method of measurement, have fulltiltpoker.net ranked at 15,980, with 77k+ monthly visitors.

Bigoakinc.com calculates that it gets roughly 6-7k visitors a month, or perhaps one tenth of the traffic of the poker website. Askfrank.net,

is fairly popular with around 175,000  visitors a month and our current Alexa 3 months average ranking, as of February 2013, is relatively low at 9,691.

So, why care about Alexa Ranking ?

There are some cases where Alexa ranking does matter. For example, there are some ad placement and affiliate programs that won’t accept your website unless

it’s got some minimum Alexa ranking. Additionally, there are other directories and services like reviewme.com, or payperpost.com that use Alexa rankings to

make decisions. It’s also a factor if you are trying to sell your website or domain, as most purchasers use factors like Alexa rank or Google Page Rank to

decide what your website is worth. However, for askfrank.net, none of the above really matters. We don’t use the services that depend on Alexa ranks, have no

plans to sell the website, and don’t deal with affiliates that care about things like ranking. Our honest reasons for caring boil down to a bit of pride and ego

about the ranking, and a lot of curiosity about why Alexa ranks some sites solow.

Alright, so how to increase your Alexa Ranking then?

We did quite a bit of research on this, and didn’t really find any suggestions that seemed feasible. Some of the ideas out there:

  • Installing one ofAlexa’s site widgets
    • We tried this, but it had no effect on the rating. Additionally, the widget was sometimes slow in rendering, and hence made our website slower.
    • Otherstried experiments with the widget, and got no conclusive results.
    • Also,Alexa says the widget has no effect on rankings
  • Scripts and services that try to game the system either viaredirects,automating a web browserwith the aalexa toolbar to visit your site or service that cheat the system
      • As for the “Alexa Redirects”, there wasn’t any evidence that it worked, andAlexa appears to have shut it downanyway.
      • There is some evidence that automating hits to your website will work and can get you into the 50,000 range or so. However, we do have our ethics, andaren’t going to be trying any blackhat or dubious approaches
      • Recently Tested it was a total waste of my time. Tested on one of my domains and haven’t gained any alexa rank what so ever. But hey, what could you expect from a service whichitself had 220K alexa rank. Same for the their so called “alexa traffic” is not affecting alexa rank. After sending over

        50K US traffic I can confirm its not working.

      • Also check alexa rank for the company that offers alexa rank increase, if for some reason they have nothing to show for, you got your answer. Decent oneswill show at least 80K or bellow 50K for their own website. Any company that itself has alexa rank over 100K is not going to help you. Be aware.

Long story short, we’re settling for the most obvious solution:

Writing an article that website marketing and SEO folks might care about. Yep…you guessed it. This is the article. The idea here is that a decent article

about why the usual tricks to increase Alexa rank either don’t work, or aren’t a good idea, might attract some new and different visitors. And if those visitors

were from the web marketing and SEO community, they might have the Alexa toolbar installed. Since Alexa bases it’s rankings solely on visitors with the toolbar,

the ranking should go up.

The Experiment

Starting today, the plan is to:

  1. Finish and publish this article to the website.
  2. Find a few key places to promote the article.
  3. Each week, post our current Alexa rating to the bottom of this page so we can track progress.

Weimaraner puppies for sale in Destin Florida only 1 puppy left

My Beach wedding Day-What’s a Little Rain?

I only had one regret when I married my husband. I had always wanted to be married on the beach in Florida. At the time, we simply did not have the money for even one of the budget beach weddings offered by some wedding planners. Still, my marriage to my husband has been long and happy. Earlier this year, my husband got down on bended knee and asked me to marry him again in a vow renewals ceremony. I knew I would finally have my dream of the perfect wedding package in Destin, Florida.

All went as planned. I worked with an excellent wedding coordinator who was able to arrange all aspects of my dream wedding over the phone and internet. She planned each detail out, from themes to dresses and from entertainment to the best wedding photographer. I had complete confidence in the planner and knew the wedding would go off without a hitch.

My husband and I, along with our family, arrived in Destin, Florida several days before the day of the ceremony. It allowed us time to enjoy the gorgeous beach and wonderfully hot sun. We really enjoyed the weather especially – we live in northern Michigan and the winter had been particularly brutal. After several days of fun in the sun it was time for the big event.

You never really believe that it will rain during your beach wedding – sure you hear horror stories, but you are positive it will not happen to you. Boy did it happen to me. It was not just a simple rain storm, it was a monsoon. With wind gusts that made the sand fly and the waves crash mightily down, my Destin wedding planner was all set to move the wedding in doors, but my husband and I would not be dissuaded. What was a little rain and sand and wind and waves against our love?

We ended up having the vow renewals ceremony right on the beach in the middle of one of the worse storms the city had every seen. The sand was flying so hard it stung our skin and we did not speak our vows so much as yell them. We were soaking wet, my gossamer veil practically disintegrated and we laughed the whole time.

Marriage proves that obstacles can be overcome and that sometimes love is all you need. When faced with the storm of the century, my husband and I simply clasped hands and looked it straight in the eye. We did it with a smile on our faces, laughter in our voices and the strength of love in our hearts. I cannot thank our wedding coordinator in Destin enough for planning out the perfect ceremony and allowing us the freedom to ‘ruin’ it by getting married in the rain.

Our funny little beach wedding in Destin, Florida was perfect. Our guests got a big kick out of watching us stand up to the storm…….of course they watched us from the comfort of the reception tent!


 

Haunted House

I’m the first person to admit that I use photography in a slightly different way than most people. I recently moved down to Florida, where I met and married my husband. When I moved into his Destin home, I didn’t just get a husband, I got step children as well – teenage step-children. Now it is important to note that both my husband and I are practical jokers – we really like to tease people, so it just seemed to make sense to use my talent as a photographer and our combined practical joke experience to ease the kids into having a new step-mother.

My step-son, who is 19, is gullible and easy to get. I discovered he is afraid of haunted houses. My husband and I decided the perfect way to ‘get’ his son was by convincing him the new house was haunted. As I have said, I am one of the most avid amateur photographers I know, so we decided to rely on my skills with my digital camera and Photoshop to convince my new step-son the house was haunted. After stopping at a Destin photographers shop to pick up a new digital camera, I began by snapping some pictures of the house one day when he wasn’t there. I made sure to take very ‘general’ pictures – nothing too close up, nothing too specific.

I uploaded the pictures I had taken to my computer and used Photoshop to make them a lot more spooky looking. For example, I used a ghost filter to blur the picture I took of his bathroom, and added odd flashes of light in mirrors and windows throughout the house. Some of the pictures I left alone, but I had set them up in advance to be odd. I took a picture of the kitchen with all the cabinets open and one of his vanity with the mirror hanging backwards.

Now is the kicker, once he had finished putting his new room together, I offered him my skills as a photographer, told him I would take some pictures of the house and help him upload them to the computer to send to his mother. This part didn’t just take photography skills, it took acting skills, because I had to duplicate the picture I had already taken. Luckily I had taken such general photos that the ‘point and click’ worked, he thought I was snapping shots he directed.

That night, the three of us sat down at the computer and my step-son watched me upload our pictures from my camera to the computer for the first time. What I actually did was simply open up the pictures I had previously taken. Imagine his surprise when he saw the picture of the kitchen with all the doors open – he freaked out, after all, he was there when I took the picture and he “knew” the cabinets were closed.

The joke went on from there, with my step son becoming more and more convinced that the photography shots I had taken proved the house was haunted. We told him, of course, that the house wasn’t haunted, and filled him in on the joke, but not until he spent an hour on the phone telling his friends about his ‘huanted’ house. We all agree that our haunted photography joke is one for the history books.


 

Super Destin Photography Woman

OK, I will admit it; I am not the most organized person in the world. I want to be; really I do, especially after the birth of my first son. I wanted so much to be one of those moms who had the camera always at the ready, my own personal photographer, but to be honest, there was just too much to remember. I swear the photography studio that develops pictures in Santa Rosa Beach in Florida probably has fifteen developed roles of my film.

When I was lucky enough to remember to drop off the film (that hardly ever happened), remembering to pick it up was a whole other matter. So I did the next logical thing, I looked up Santa Rosa Beach photography studios and started bringing the baby in to a professional photographer. I guess this solution worked ok, but it was really expensive and I never got any of those candid shots of my Florida baby in the ocean at Santa Rosa Beach or cramming his face full of cake. I figured the only way I was going to get what I wanted in regards to photography was to learn to do it myself.

 

So I broke down and bought one of those digital cameras. Now, I was sure that someone like me would never be able to produce quality photography with that little camera, but I did not really have anything to lose, so I gave it a shot. I read the manual, I charged my batteries, and I went to town. Clicking and snapping away, I ended up feeling like a true photographer. That little camera had more features then anyone could possibly need, but my goodness I was going to try them all. Action shots, night shots, time delayed and wide angle, I did it all.

And guess what? I did it well. I was beating those photographers at the local Santa Rosa Beach Photography studio hands down. I caught my little guy with his hand in the cookie jar, my husband snoozing on the patio and my dog digging a hole under the fence (which explained a lot actually). I was having the time of my life. Candid shots galore and more. I posed my family formerly, tried to get the dog to smile and even took some shots of birds and butterflies in my backyard.

No subject was too small for Super Photographer Women! I shot them all. And then, panic set in – I could not imagine getting the pictures off of my camera and onto my computer would be easy. I was very certain I would have to hold a degree in computerized photography to do it. I plugged in the cable, hit the power button and waited…..and there they were, in all their glory: my guilty boy, snoring spouse and digging dog. Even better, I could edit the pictures! No more red eye. Overexposed? No problem. I feel like Florida’s premier photographer now, only problem is, my friends and family are now refusing to open more than one email full of pics from me a day!


 

Photography that’s Good Enough to Eat

What is it about those great photographs, those three dimensional wonders that jump right off the menu at your favorite restaurant? How is it that a photographer can make the photos have you salivating for something you never would have thought of before you browsed the menu?

Many of my friends have often pondered their dining decisions based upon those grand snaps of delectable items instead of the written lists of culinary delights available. It’s amazing to see adults pointing to photographs of the food item when relaying their selection to the wait staff, as if they were incapable of reading the verbiage. The photographers who specialize in this 3-D menu photography are masters of the genre, eliciting from customers grand exclamations like, “wow, doesn’t that look yummy” or “yum, I’ll have to save room for that dessert”. With lighting, shadow and the proper camera, these talented gurus of photography can create menu pictures that jump of the page and will tempt any diner into a purchase.

They will often take an item which you would never have ordered based on the text listed, but then you see the culinary masterpiece enticing you to just try it. The need to select this item not based on food content, preparation methods, but just on the wonderful photograph that looks good enough to eat. What’s actually rather comical is that the 3-D food photography is usually not of the authentic food item, but of a replica, made from other substances, to replicate the meal. Just think about it.

Let’s say an ice cream shop wants to hire a professional photographer to add images of their specialty sundaes to their menu. Now picture the lighting required, and the heat that the lighting will generate. How long do you think genuine ice cream and whipped cream would hold up for several hours near that heat source? The answer – not very long at all. Shortly after being assembled, the confectionary masterpiece would look like a pool of melted sludge. That definitely wouldn’t produce a photograph the ice cream shop would want shared with their clientele! So, how do those master photographers attain those incredible shots?

 Simply, they recreate the item out of substances that will hold up. That delectable ice cream sundae could have actually been scoops of stiff, colored mashed potatoes, with possibly shave cream or a polymer as the whipped topping. Though some real product may be used, like candy bits or nuts, the majority of the masterpiece being photographed was not fabricated with the genuine articles! Often, colored clays and molded plastics may be utilized by the photographer, topped with actual syrups.

Very rarely is the item in that wonderful photograph the food product itself. This may be one of the reasons why, when your order arrives, based upon one of those mouth-watering pictures, that you may be somewhat disappointed.

You based your choice on the fantastic ability of the photographer, instead of the culinary ability of the cook. Many talented chefs can produce the items on their menu with the same level of artistry found in the photography.

However, one should not expect masterpieces from a fast food or family restaurant, where the cooks might have been an auto mechanic last week. If you are going to make your dining selection based on the photographer’s mastery, it is best to stick to restaurants that employ culinary masters in their kitchens.


 

Our Weimaraners in Destin Florida Photography

Anyone who has ever tried to take a photograph of their other family member, the household pet, knows just how difficult that can be. I know that my attempts to capture my two Weimaraners, Bolek and Sally, almost always make them look like a red-eyed dervish instead of the lovable darlings they truly are.

 

Puppy Weimeraners by Destin Florida Photography

Weimaraner puppies for sale in Florida

It seems to me that the four legged darlings that we consider another person in our flocks can be very temperamental when it comes to photography. However, for those of us who want a lasting image of our priceless pet, the answer is to engage a Destin Pet Photographer. Just one brief look at a sampling of any animal photography will by a professional will speak for itself. Whether you desire just a portrait of your feline or canine child the talent behind the camera is what counts.

Whether you are in the studio or looking for an outdoor scene environment for your pet’s picture, a professional photographer can accommodate your wishes and deliver you a pet portrait that will capture the essence of your pet’s personality.

People, who own exotics or those with the everyday tabby, are after a result that takes a trained eye and an innate sense of timing to get on film. When we want those millisecond moments that warm our hearts in a picture to last a lifetime, our best choice for Pet  Photography  was our only, master Florida photographer. Knowing the best background for framing our favorite Weim, while interpreting light and shadow, and then timing the shot expertly is why we engaged a professional photographer.

Seeing Wedding Photographers Cry

Many  photographers who love photographing weddings have told me that they get overwhelmed sometimes by the emotion of the wedding event.

 

photographers don't cry

 

This is easy to do, particularly if you relish the ritual and the tenderness of the wedding ceremony- in short, if you’re a hopeless romantic. I didn’t believe it till I saw it for myself – at my wedding day, when the photographers took moments off to wipe their tears! I got married without my shoes, my feet feeling the sand on the beach – as did the feet of everyone else who was there in Destin, Florida. It was a gorgeous day, and a wonderful occasion – the happiest of my life. The wedding photographers had us lined up for many, oh so many shots – from all angles and every direction.

 

beach wedding

 

There were formal photo-shoots and informal ones; single and group photos. Photographer shot till we all wanted to drop. Seriously! My wedding party was one group that wasn’t formal. Group photographs were panoramic, with Steve (my husband), bridesmaids, groomsmen and myself doing a conga line down the beach, dresses held high out of the water and the men’s pant legs rolled up. Destin Photographers were trendy and modern, yet their work eluded warmth. They knew what they were doing – barking orders for us to line up, or sit, or stand – even crazy things like, ‘lie down on the sand’. It did make for a very interesting photograph – luckily for me, it wasn’t my dress which had to suffer! Out little flower girl, my niece, all dolled up in her satin dress, took a moment to play in the sand on the beach, providing a real feel for the beauty of the beach wedding. There was a peaceful, relaxed feel to the entire affair, and the little girl demonstrated it perfectly. Photographs caught that on camera and we have her, perpetually smiling at us on the mantelpiece. We had a wonderful experience that day in Destin. Weddings are supposed to be memorable. The best way to keep that experience one you can truly cherish is by hiring the best picture takers you can find. Having a photographer who works with you, understands that this is not only your very special day, but also one of your most emotional. Just like the rest of our wonderful bridal party, my photography team was supportive and made an otherwise camera shy girl fell comfortable with the picture taking. We were very lucky to find that Destin based wedding photographer’s team, who took us through that wonderfully long day and left us with amazing memories we have to hold on to, for better or for worse, till death does us part.

If I were able to help you get a couple of extra clients every month, do you think you are going to be able to handle the extra business?
Do you have a mobile version of your website?
NO, there is NO problem with your current website. What I am offering to you is an additional mobile optimized version of your website that will only be served up to those visitors using a mobile device.

Even if your html website is already optimized and ranking high for your key terms, when an user lands on it via mobile device he/she will have to do a lot of scrolling and magnifying before she/he will be able to find basic info such as phone number, email address, map location or simple description of your services.
And that is a big ” if ” provided your potential customer uses high speed G3/G4 internet connection otherwise most of the pages will load so slow I bet half way trough it, 75% of them will bounce off. No sale , no lead capture.
On the other hand, if you were to be equipped whit the latest technology called “mobile optimized version of your website”, things would look much different, there would be no excuse not to sell your services, other than your server being down, overloaded from all those mobile users browsing and filling up the order forms.

Take a look, bellow are samples of the same website viewed on identical mobile device (or mobile website simulator)
The one on the left shows it the way regular website looks viewed on mobile device.
Image one on the right shows the mobile version of the same website.
Notice how cluttered and confusing the view on the left is? good luck trying finding a menu or navigation bar in there.

The mobile version is fast,simple, low on graphic yet well organized and clear to read with optimal information right in front of you.

Which would your customer prefer to see on their mobile phone?

No Mobile
Regular website viewed by potential customers via their smart phone ( iphone, android, blackberry etc.)
Mobile Ready
And this is what same visitor sees after arriving( in 3x less time) on the same website with mobile version optimized and created by me. What a difference!

regular website viewed on mobile device

Over the past few years, mobile web usage has increased dramatically to the point that businesses and organizations can no longer afford to ignore it.

In wealthy countries, the shift is being fueled by faster mobile broadband connections and cheaper data service.

However, a large increase has also been seen in developing nations where people have skipped over buying PCs and gone straight to mobile

Statistics show that only 1-2% of all .com, .net and .org website domains currently have a mobile optimized version.
Research has also shown that by the year 2013, more people will be visiting websites on mobile devices than a normal PC.

As it currently stands Apple devices do NOT support flash. Flash is a technology that adds animation, video, and other interactivity to web pages.
You have probably seen those websites where things slide in, slide out, and move around. These websites have been built using flash.
When a user on an Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod visits one of those websites, all they will see is a blank screen asking them to upgrade their flash player.
This is death to any business. Having your website unavailable to a large proportion of mobile users is like literally throwing money down the toilet.
The scary thing is a lot of business owners are not aware of the problem.

Short Guide to Secure, Hack Free WordPress Blog 2012

This is going to be short and to the point .
I understand that for many there are parts of this tutorial that need more explanation and I will explain each step in more details later in the next wp security tutorial  that will also include htaccess security tips designed to protect your website from malicious scripts looking for vulnerabilities and exploit opportunities ,reduce number of malicious URL requests, saving resources for stuff like PHP and MySQL for all blocked requests.

For now, let me show you those necessary steps you need to take to secure your WP blog from being vulnerable to common WP hacks.


Before you begin :
1.Make sure you have a clean backup copy of your DB and WP Content available.
2. Make sure All themes and plugins are up to date. Remove all unused plugins and themes .Just because those plugins are d it does not prevent a hacker from finding vulnerability and compromise your blog
3. WP login: change your standard login name “admin” to something more secure. Now, say good by to the old user “admin” and delete it!


Now for the initial file security:

Securing your wp-config.php file.The wp-config.php file contains the name of your database and database password, it makes sense to protect it  doesn’t it?

1. Edit  and add (or replace old ) secret keys to wp-config.php ( get new keys  from here : Visit https://api.wordpress.org/secret-key/1.1/  )

2. Move wp-config.php up one level into your home from public_html  ( WordPress allows you to move this up one level from your wwwroot to your home where it will be not publicly accessible)

3. Change wp-config.php permissions to 600 ( Nobody needs to read your wp-config file.)

Securing other files:

1. Delete readme.html, wp-admin/install.php and wp-admin/install-helper.php . We dont want all this info laying around do we?

2. Create 0 byte index.php in wp-content/uploads, Make sure that the permissions are set to 755 .
Go ahead type www.yourblog.com/wp-content/uploads/
I bet most people will find uploads directory wide open to public eye.. installed plugins etc

 

3. Set .htaccess to 644 (or 664)


For your database security:

Replace your standard wp_ table prefix with something more random. Don’t make it easy on hackers by living it @ wp_
As soon as you do that , update your wp-config.php file with new table prefix , also add this line at the bottom of your wp-cofig.php file:


define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);


This is to prevent wordpress from returning debug information, you need to turn off  WP_DEBUG
Now, change wp-config permissions to 400, your wp-config.php file should be secure now.


Download and Install  blockbadqueries plugin – It prevents bad queries to your wordpress installation and adds protection against SQL injection attacks.

Install  and run all 3 , FREE WP Security Plugins ( from your WP add new plugin panel )

1. Ultimate Security Check
2. WP Security Scan
3. Secure WordPress

Finally, change WP login passwords frequently and if you have a static IP, you can restrict login using a .htaccess file by adding a few lines.

For example:

<Files wp-login.php>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from your.ip.add.ress
</Files>

This is it folks, I will be explaining all the above in more details next week
If you enjoyed this short list of tips, I would really appreciate your feedback.

Full WordPress Security Guide, How to Protect Your Blog From SQL injections and Other Pharma Hacks in 2012

To be continue soon..

In the mean time please read Short Guide Here:  http://www.askfrank.net/how-to-secure-wordpress-blog-from-being-hacked-2012/

And also bellow is htaccess security code written by Jeff  Starr . The 5G Blacklist helps reduce the number of malicious URL requests that hit your website. It’s one of many ways to improve the security of your site and protect against evil exploits, bad requests, and other nefarious garbage
What it does:

The 5G Blacklist is a simple, flexible blacklist that checks all URI requests against a series of carefully constructed HTAccess directives. This happens quietly behind the scenes at the server level, saving resources for stuff like PHP and MySQL for all blocked requests.
How to use it:

To install the 5G Firewall, append the following code to your site’s root .htaccess:

# 5G BLACKLIST/FIREWALL
# @ http://perishablepress.com/5g-blacklist-2012/

# 5G:[QUERY STRINGS]

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (environ|localhost|mosconfig|scanner) [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (menu|mod|path|tag)\=\.?/? [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} boot\.ini [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} echo.*kae [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} etc/passwd [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \=\\%27$ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \=\\\’$ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \.\./ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \? [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \: [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \[ [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \] [NC]
RewriteRule .* – [F]

# 5G:[USER AGENTS]

SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent ^$ keep_out
SetEnvIfNoCase User-Agent (casper|cmsworldmap|diavol|dotbot) keep_out
