I guess they used to be Rocketlinks.
Instead of listing my webpage as a link the way
all the other search engines do,
they have it listed, when you click on the
link for my webpage the URL is listed as "Bay9.com"
with a cgi ending.
This in effect is taking my webpage and giving it a
Why would they do something like this?
I don't like it. Should I be upset?
This sounds like they are serving your page as a search result. There are three ways this could be done.
1 They outright copied your page and are serving it locally. I doubt they are doing this without your permission, unless they are owned by google!
2 This one is most likely. They are serving your page within a frame. It's lame to do this, but they be using the frame page to keep track of their fpf traffic.
There is nothing high tech about this approach, and it is cheap bandwidth wise. I don't think it is illegal yet to do without the site owners permission. Mr.
Disney's Go.com does it.
3 They are pulling you page on the fly through their server. This could be expensive, and probably illegal without your consent.
Without seeing it, I bet it's #2. It's easy to test, just look at the source code to see if it is your site or a frame page.
BTW - They have old Walt's head hooked up to a super computer and he is now the new, err old CEO again. Look out Bill Gates!
This is a copy of the email I got in response to my inquiry to them about this. I had requested a refund of the moeny in my account also but I guess they forgot.
