View Full Version : Prevent mp3 Scouring Sites from Linking

16 Feb 2010, 05:53 PM
On one of my websites I have several mp3s hosted. My dilemma is that there are hundreds of websites that appear to simply scour the internet for mp3 files and links to them via their incoherent cluster of irrelevant keywords and links. Some of these sites even put a price on the mp3s.

What options do I have to keep the mp3 files hosted on my site from being indexed/referenced by these websites? Do I have to disable hotlinking entirely for them? I'm not opposed to someone posting a link on a forum to one of the mp3s (or a similar scenario), but I don't like what these sites do.
