Editing Templates

The optimized text you show to search engine spiders when they visit a cloaked page is generated based on templates that you can edit. To edit your templates, first hold your mouse over the "Templates" menu item, then pick the template which you wish to edit.

Note: It is very important that you edit your templates. Do not use the templates that came with your software. They were not designed to be used without heavy editing by you. They are actually guides on what should go in a template.

There are 10 different templates, each assigned to an IP List:

If a viewer of a cloaked page's IP address is in the Alta Vista list, the Alta Vista template would be used to create the web page the viewer sees.

Each template can be edited by changing the text displayed in the textbox. The templates that come with the software are meant to be edited by you after installation. What's in the templates by default is meant only to instruct you in good template techniques. Edit the templates after installation!

Under the textbox in which the template is edited, are some instructions with tips on template syntax. The instructions are also listed below:

Instructions

Templates contain "codes" that control how they are interpreted by your cloaking software. Each code has a # character at the beginning of the code, and a # character at the end of the code. Although using the codes in your templates is optional, you'll find they can be very powerful tools when used creatively. The various codes and how they work are described below.

Anywhere in the template it says #keyword# will be replaced with the primary keyword phrase.

You can change the case of your primary keyword phrase by using the following codes:

#keyword# = primary keyword phrase in the case in which it was originally typed
#keywordLC# = primary keyword phrase in lower case
#keywordUC# = primary keyword phrase in UPPER CASE
#keywordTC# = primary keyword phrase in Title Case

You can also break up your primary keyword phrase into its component words by using this type of code: #keyword(1)# for the first word of the phrase, #keyword(2)# for the second word, and so on. The case can be controlled like #keyword(1)UC# for the first word in UPPER CASE, etc.

You can use the code #indexkeyword# to insert the primary keyword phrase associated with your cloaked index or sitemap page into the page.

You can use the code #filename# to insert the filename of the cloaked page into the page.

Anywhere in the template it says #secondarykeyword# will be replaced with a randomly selected keyword taken from your list of secondary keywords.

Anywhere in the template it says #tertiarykeyword# will be replaced with a randomly selected keyword taken from your list of tertiary keywords.

You can use #customkw(listname)# codes to use custom keyword lists. You specify which custom keyword list to use with the "listname" portion of the code. For example, #customkw(listone)# would pull a keyword phrase from your "listone.kwl" file.

You can have lines from your "random text" file inserted randomly wherever you put #randomtext#. This will result in the same line being loaded every time a search engine views the page. Alternatively, you can use a #randomtextdynamic# to have a different random line loaded every time.

If you would like to insert links to your other cloaked pages in your pages, you can either hard-code them into the templates, or use #randomlink# tags. Anywhere a #randomlink# tag is found in a template will be replaced with a randomly chosen cloaked link. Also, anywhere a #randomlinktext# tag is found, the tag will be replaced with the same random link, repeated. For example, you could use this format:

<a href="#randomlink#">#randomlinktext#</a>

You can also extract the primary keyword from a cloaked link by using the following:

<a href="#randomlink#">#randomlinkkeyword#</a>

You can also insert randomly selected links from your Random Pages List by using a #randompage# code. Your Random Pages List is a list of URLs that are not on this domain.

You can use the link text associated with a random link by using a #randompagelinktext# tag. The #randompage# and #randompagelinktext# tags must be on the same line to function properly. Here is an example of their use:

<a href="#randompage#">#randompagelinktext#</a>

You can insert the contents of another file somewhere on the web into the optimized page you show search engine spiders. To do this you use the following type of code:

#remote:"http://www.somewebsite.com/anypage.html"#

The file you insert can be a complete web page, just a snippet of code, a page with a Server Side Include, a CGI script, or whatever you want! The URL you provide must be a complete URL, including the http:// part, etc. The URL must be surrounded by quotation ( "" ) marks.

You can repeat the output of the randomly generated template codes, such as #secondarykeyword#, #tertiarykeyword#, #customkw(listname)#, #randomtext#, #randomtextdynamic, #randomlink#, #randomlinktext#, #randomlinkkeyword#, #randompage#, and #randompagelinktext#. To do so, use parenthesis "()" before the final pound sign "#" and an integer, like this: #secondarykeyword(2)#. The preceeding example would pull the secondary keyword used two #secondarykeyword# tags ago. Here's an example:

Template code:
#secondarykeyword#
#secondarykeyword#
#secondarykeyword#
#secondarykeyword(2)#
#secondarykeyword(1)#

Produces
first keyword phrase
second keyword phrase
third keyword phrase
second keyword phrase
third keyword phrase
