Encrypt or Hide Your HTML Source Code

Almost everything on Internet is susceptible to theft. When computers at Pentagon can be hacked by some Chinese hackers, then how can you make sure your blog or website is secured against them.
Although your blog may not be having something of national importance but, certainly you will not like to get your content stolen by others.
The easiest way through which visitors can take away and use your content is by checking the 'source code' of your blog and copying it.
While checking the source code, they look for some common markers in the code, like footer or sidebar headings, or image 'alt' tags etc.

Now see these two codes:
1. A simple hyperlink;
<a href="http://bloggerstop.net" target="_blank">BloggerStop.Net</a>

2. Highly encrypted javascript code;
<Script Language='Javascript'>
<!--
document.write(unescape('%3C%61%20%68%72%65%66%3D%22%68%74%74%70%3A%2F%2F%62%6C%6F%67%67%65%72%73%74%6F%70%2E%6E%65%74%22%20%74%61%72%67%65%74%3D%22%5F%62%6C%61%6E%6B%22%3E%42%6C%6F%67%67%65%72%53%74%6F%70%2E%4E%65%74%3C%2F%61%3E'));
//-->
</Script>
If you use any of the two codes above, the result will be the same (a link to BloggerStop.Net), while the 'source code' will be completely different and totally alien to most of the users to understand.

Here's the tool to do similar encryption of any HTML code and not only simple hyperlinks:
So now at least your content will be safe from the newbie bloggers and webmasters :)

NOTE: Do not use this for every widget on your blog, as these are all in javascript which can slow down your blog. So at maximum I would suggest you to use this method for 4/5 widgets per page.

This is a good method to stop 'stupid' people from stealing your html code. However, if I really wanted to, I could still steal it, just it would take me about two minutes longer.

That is why I have mentioned, that at least the content will be safe from the newbie bloggers !

Moreover sometimes even those extra two minutes are enough to keep the lazy freaks out of our blogs :))

Well can this work for your post as well. And I noticed you don't have a single thing in your page encrypted

No this method is not for content/pictures protection, if you are searching for something like that, then simply search for "content protection" in this blog.

Thanks! I encrypted an audio player for a blog post, because I don't want people easily downloading the files.
