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.

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 ;)
