Lapoo.nl hotlinked a game on my one site which is still per mb bandwidth. It cost me 2.50 so I got my revenge! I used this .htaccess code:


RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?games2go.co.uk/.*$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?games2go.co.uk.*$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?3bgames.co.uk/.*$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?3bgames.co.uk.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule \.(swf|dcr)$ http://www.games2go.co.uk/lapoo.html [R,L]

To make it have the game in a small frame from a per month bandwidth thing I have loads left on, and put loads of ads on for my site and for a ad network.

I've got over 1250 banner impressions in 12 hours... Cool hey...

The URL that hotlinked me is:

http://www.lapoo.nl/couronne/

You may wish to do something like this if someone hotlinks your site to get free advertising and money and to get back at them.

I like how you changed it from what is was before! Nice thinking...

I doubt they will even realize it for a long time...

I know, I've made about $4 from fastclick already... I'm thinking of doing a feeds thing for online games sites to put the frames on which look like there site, but have ads on...

Get ICQ anyway, it's very useful...

I don't get how that works, seems like a good idea though. Could you explain please?

The restart didn't help, so if you want to chat you will have to get AIM or ICQ.

I used .htaccess to stop them using an iframe on one of my files which was costing me bandwidth. I redirected them to a html file with ads on and the game on hostony servers, which i have about 59gb bandwidth a month spare on.

Is that something that combines all three?

Thank you Mike:)

The amount of ads shown is getting higher now America is coming online :)

Trillian is working for the other things, but MSN on it keeps logging in and out. It won't stay online.
