Note: File name structure for phantom pages - STANDARD MODE (SINGLE JOB/DOMAIN) In this section, the file name structure is configured. By default, phantom page file names are generated following this basic scheme: keyword-01-01.html Example: -------- keyword/search phrase = "search engine optimization" >>>>>>>>>>>> file name = "search-engine-optimization-01-01.html" In this example, the individual components of the search phrase are separated by a "-" (hyphen). The two-digit numbers at the end of the file name constitute administrative indicators: - first digit pair "01": indicates that this is the first phantom page generated for this particular keyword/search phrase - second digit pair "01": indicates that this is the first phantom page generation job for this particular Shadow Domain Thus, if you run a second job generating fresh phantom pages for the same set of keywords/search phrases, but with a different keyword density, you would receive the following file name: "search_engine_optimization-02-02.html" Consequently, adhering to our example, a third run, adding another keyword/search phrase ("search engines optimization"), would generate: "search_engines_optimization-01-03.html" When conducting ranking checks later on, after the phantom pages have been submitted to the search engines and indexed, it will be easy to determine from the file name and the log file (for which see below) which parameters were employed to achieve a particular ranking. This in turn will facilitate further fine tuning of your SEO strategy for optimal results. Textareas: "File name phrasal separators" + "Separators Keyword/Search Phrases – Definers" - In textarea "File name phrasal separators", to separate the constituent elements of a multi-term search phrase (as opposed to a single term keyword) you may define the characters to be used. Valid characters are: Aa-Zz,0-9,-_+,.;!~ If you should happen to define some invalid characters by mistake, they will automatically be removed from the list during processing. By default, the text area comes populated with the following characters after installation: - _ + , . ; ! ~ You may add or delete characters from this standard list at your leisure. During phantom page generation, the program will select random separators from whichever valid characters are included in this field. This allows for more flexibility and uniqueness ("de-patternizing") when assigning file names to your phantom pages. - In textarea "Separators Keyword/Search Phrases – Definers", you may similarly define the characters separating your keywords/search phrases from their suffixed file name definers (e. g. "-01-01" in default mode). All other rules (e. g. re valid characters, etc.) outlined above apply in full to this textarea field as well so please see above for details.
Checkbox: "Further customize file name structure as defined below" Selecting this box allow you to further customize your file name structure beyond the default values explained above. When activated, file names are construed from three basic definer elements. Example: Definer Element 1: page Definer Element 2: _ Definer Element 3: eg2a3b You can configure each of these elements separately within the following fields. Radiobox: "File name definer element 1" (with entry field) Selecting this option will generate file names with a set (fixed) file name element 1. Radiobox: "Randomize file name definer element 1 with" (with text area) This option allows for multiple strings to be used for element 1. You may enter these strings within the text area field. By default, some example strings are included in the text area. You may use, modify, delete or expand this list in accord with your requirements. Radiobox: "File name definer element 2" (with entry field) Selecting this option will generate file names with a set (fixed) file name element 2. Radiobox: "Randomize file name definer element 2 with" (with text area) This option allows for multiple strings to be used for element 2. You may enter these strings within the text area field. By default, some example strings are included in the text area. You may use, modify, delete or expand this list in accord with your requirements. Note that syntactically invalid entries not in accord with web file naming standards will be removed automatically before processing.
Selectbox: "File name definer element 3" This box gives you a choice of options for file name element 3: - Letters (lower case) only - Letters (mixed case) only - Letters (upper case) only - Numerals + letters (mixed case) - Numerals only Radiobox: "Fixed no. of chars definer element 3" (with entry field) Selecting this option and defining an integer will generate file names with a set (fixed) number of characters for file name element 3. Radiobox: "Randomize no. of chars file name definer element 3. Range" (with entry fields) Select this radiobox to define a range of number of characters to be used for file name element 3 from which the program will choose a random value. Button: "View examples of file names" Click this button to see 5 examples of file names generated according to your specifications in the fields and boxes above. This allows you to make final amendments and modifications if required before actually triggering the phantom page generation process proper.
Checkbox: "Include RSS Feed(s)" By popular demand, the program offers integration of RSS feeds into all, select or a randomized number of generated phantom pages. The advantage of this powerful feature is that it helps keep your phantom page content fresh automatically: provided the specified RSS feed is functional and updated regularly, a search engine spider will usually detect new content every time it crawls your phantom page. And, of course, search engines are known to prefer fresh, regularly updated pages. On the downside however, note that integrating RSS feeds will impair precision of your configured keyword density and text weight values for that given page! To make the most of both options (i. e. with/without RSS feeds), we strongly recommend our customary "buckshot" approach by selecting "include randomly in every ... nth page", with "..." being any integer greater than 1. This way you will have a mixed assortment of phantom pages both featuring and not featuring RSS feeds for optimal results. LEGAL NOTICE + DISCLAIMER ------------------------- Unlike the fillertext generated by the program, RSS feeds will be pulled from their respective host servers and will be presented "as is", i. e. the feeds are not modified or sanitized in any way. This may raise legal issues concerning fair usage, potential copyright infringement, etc. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO SELECT ONLY RSS FEEDS THAT ARE EITHER IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN OR IF YOU EITHER HAVE THE RIGHTS HOLDER'S EXPRESS PERMISSION TO DO SO OR IF YOU YOURSELF ARE THE LEGAL COPYRIGHT HOLDER! IN MOST JURISDICTIONS, WILLFUL COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT IS CONSIDERED AND TREATED AS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE AND MAY THUS INCUR GRAVE PENALTIES INCLUDING IMPRISONMENT AND HEFTY CIVIL DAMAGES CLAIMS! NEITHER FANTOMASTER.COM PGMBH AND ITS STAFF MEMBERS NOR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES OR MARKETING PARTNERS CONDONE OR ENDORSE COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT AND WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LEGAL CONSEQUENCES AND CLAIMS RESULTING FROM ABUSE OF THIS PROGRAM FEATURE.
Radiobox: "Insert at beginning of body text" The RSS feed will be inserted at the beginning of a phantom page. Radiobox: "Insert at end of body text" The RSS feed will be inserted at the end of a phantom page. Radiobox: "Insert on home/index page only" The RSS feed will be inserted in the index/home page only. Radiobox: "Insert in all pages" The RSS feed will be inserted in all phantom pages. Note that this may consume considerably more bandwidth as the RSS feeds will first be spidered before being integrated in the phantom pages! Radiobox: "Randomize insertion in every nth page" (with entry field) The RSS feed will be inserted randomly only in every nth page (integer to be defined by you). This can reduce dramatically the number of pages featuring RSS feeds. Field: "RSS Feed URLs" Define the RSS feeds you want to include in your phantom pages here, one entry per line. Example: RSS Feed URL 1 RSS Feed URL 2 RSS Feed URL 3 The program will then select a random RSS feed from this list when generating phantom pages. Button: "Check RSS Feeds" All RSS feeds must be validated before this function can be used. To this effect, the listed feeds are run through the FEED Validator program at "http://www.feedvalidator.org/" and the results will be displayed in a fresh browser window. NOTE THAT THIS STEP IS MANDATORY IF YOU OPT FOR RSS FEED INCLUSION!
