What is Web Content?

Web content is the text, and/or the multimedia (images, videos, animations and sounds) that are on a web page. The text is only what is written in an article. The best text is that which is written directly for the web page, and not cut and pasted from a source. The best text is also that which has internal links to information that explains ambiguous or technical terms. Also, usually web content is intended for a world-wide audience.

How to Protect Web Content:

Even in the cyber world there are thieves, who are resolute to steal from others. Regrettably, there is no 100% fool-proof ways to prevent them from spying, stealing or damaging your website. They may disable certain languages that built your webpage, such as JavaScript, capture images or stored information (caches), and hack into your web content. There are several ways to stop much theft, and slow down the more clever thieves. Your websites are your intellectual property, and is just as valuable as your physical property.

Google says, “Don’t create multiple pages, sub domains, or domains with substantially duplicate content.” Google informs us that search engine rankings fall when content is duplicated in any way. With exclusive content, other websites can only externally link to yours. This will raise your search engine ranking. Stolen web content, then, will mean a loss of income for your business websites. So, this is another sound reason to protect your websites that you’ve worked so hard to create.


Plagiarism is another concern for your website. According to Webster’s Dictionary, “plagiarism is to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own: use (another's production) without crediting the source.” Also, it’s a form of theft, in which a literary work is displayed a novel, and an original work that is derived from a source.

The Copyright:

Your website and its contact are protected from outright internet theft without an official copyright notice, by the United States, Canada, and reportedly Europe. However, for the rest of our world, “All Rights Reserved” is required to be posted. Also, post the following:

Use a copyright metatag posted on your html webpages. For example: <meta name=”copyright” content=”©2011 Proper Diet”/>

Display the universal copyright symbol © & copy; with the date and your web name on your html pages. For example: ©2011

Any comments can be added to the code with the copyright message. <!—Copyright 2011 ProperDiet 

Copyright Registration for the UK:

The UK will keep an independent record of your copyrighted web pages:

Copyright Registration for the USA:

According to, if absolute fail-safe protection is required in the USA for your website, register it with the U.S. Copyright Office. There is information at

Protect Your Webpages:

Ensure that permissions at your site folders are properly set. Also, check your log files periodically for hacking attempts.


A spider, or “bot”, should adhere to the direction in your robots.txt file. Your website bandwidth can be lowered by banning certain web robots. Your log files tell you all the bots that visit your website. If a visiting bot is not desired at your site, perhaps from a country with no copyright protection, you can ban it. Information on bots can be found on the Internet.

HTML Meta Tags:

More valuable information for you to use is this example, to be placed in the <head> portion of an html web page. It instructs all web robots to NOT index or analyze the web page for links:

<meta name="ROBOTS" content="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW" />. Reportedly, however, not all bots (spiders) understand this html.

Note that this code put in the <head> portion of an html web page prevents web spiders from archiving (storing) your web content: <meta name="GOOGLEBOT" content="NOARCHIVE" />.

According to the experts, if you have any images larger than 200 X 200, you can display an image toolbar that permits a visitor to your site to save the image. Just add this code to the <head> if you wish to disable that image toolbar (.htaccess can also be used). Reportedly your image could be stolen by using screen-capture software. This company, and others, offer further web protection, usually for a reasonable price.
