Keyword Spying

 8:32 am on Nov 3, 2007 (gmt 0)

I am just curious if there is a way to block key word spy websites from accessing a website and getting corret information? I am assuming not, but just wondering...

I have been thinking of ways to block them too. But on the other hand their results are so off for my own website, that now I think I can safely ignore them.

I have them running riot over one of my sites, so any suggestion would be most welcome.

i wouldn't mind them to much they seem to be not accurate anyways.

I really want to know how to do this, someone is stealing all of my keywords, this has been going on now since I posted in January. Please someone help!

Most of those sites are scraping search results pages, rather than individual sites, so it's for the search engines to block them - the 'keyword spies' don't access your site at all.

This might not be what anyone wants to hear, but people can't "steal" your keywords - OK, it might be a shortcut and an easy method of conducting surface research, but you need a strategy that someone with a few hours and a scraper can't compete with - even if that means you have to shrug it off when you see competitors hitting the copy and paste buttons ;)
