      Anonymous referrers for private sites
      Tuesday, August 05, 2008

      We have had some questions in our discussion group about why some outgoing links are sent through an extra redirect before getting to their destination URL, and we wanted to explain the benefits of this feature for private sites.

      Normally if you have a link on your website to another website, and someone clicks on that link, the URL of your page with that link is passed to that site as referral information (and visible to administrators of that site). For example, let's say the Google Sites help page (http://sites.google.com/support/) has a link to http://www.example.com/foo. When a user clicks on that link, the owners of www.example.com will be able to see that the user came from http://sites.google.com/support/. This is great information for site owners, and works well for public sites.

      While this isn't a problem for public sites, it can be an issue for private intranets. Let's say instead of our help site, the link to example.com was from your private intranet, http://sites.google.com/site/intranet/super-secret-project-name. You probably wouldn't want that link visible to the administrators of example.com, so for Google Sites that are set as private, we automatically perform what is called "referrer scrubbing" by sending outbound links through an anonymous redirector. The result is that anonymous information, not the URL of your intranet, is passed as referral information. We assume your private site is private for a reason and this includes your URLs as well as your content.

      Just one of the many features in Google Sites which allow you to focus on your content, not your infrastructure.

      Among the Upload Restrictions:
      The maximum size of one file is restricted by net2ftp (their online tool; does not apply to your FTP client) to 19,531.25 kB (kind of small; I have html pgs up to 300,000 kB) and by PHP to 20M.
      If the destination file already exists, it will be overwritten.

      (They, like OoCities.org + + below, also have a project to 'rescue' GeoCities.com's discontinued sites.)

      "If you remember an old geocities username exactly (GeoCities.com/username/), then you can just try to go to the website (OoCities.org/username/ {the same with .ws - aj}). . without searching or looking through the lists.

      ... when you remember the username but can't find anything then try: web.archive.org (aka : WayBackMachine) and geocities.ws and reocities.com . . .

      The Google search ... includes results from :


      geocities.ws (Provides free & paid web space. - aj.)
      GeoCities.ws notes: "If you found your site in our online archive you can start editing it by just following the instructions in the Sign Up Page and registering as a user. " (see above)





      www.lchr.org (c.201507 aj.)

      Google is not aware of everything . . . archive.org is not in Google.

      Special Thanks goes to all the editors and webmasters who make this project alive by updating their old links every day from * geocities.com/* (into) *oocities.com/* . "

      Note: OoCities.org: includes GeoCities.com/username/, us.geocities.com, uk.geocities.com, au.geocities.com, ca.geocities.com . . .

      Why Competitive Intelligence?

      If you want to be successful in the world of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and Internet Marketing, you have to know what methods work and what methods do not. You can read all eBooks and forums in the world and learn little useful information. Luckily, there is another way to learn - by example. If a website ranks #1 for "real estate" they must be doing something right. Great thing about the Internet is that you can't hide anything there. Every word on the page and every link is visible. ReverseInternet.com will help you find words and links that matter to search engines and understand how you can promote your website and achieve similar results. On top of that RI will help you find places where to look for good SEO ideas by finding networks of websites operated by the same person. Read on to find out how.
