    Smile Is there a way to stop data loss to competition?

    Like many others, I have competition.

    12 months ago, I pulled all of my site except the spca adoptable pet listing.
    • Another site had come on the scene and dumped thousands on ads.
    • Customer data was changing and I was not being told.
    • I suspected my data was used as the competition data base.
    Now, with 45 thousand hits a month and the other site woefully out of date (no updates in 12 months), I am returning.

    There are now four other sites. Two, possibly three, I can toast. One will be around for the long haul.

    Lacking a protection solution, is there a 12 step for paranoia

    Is there a way to protect the data?

    If it's original content blatantly ripped off, you can sue!

    Thanks.

    I may have to do that with the new release.

    Bad bot traps will stop any scrapers and make it a little harder at least.
