Track Down Page Scrapers

Insert a unique token like the following into your page and see who references it on the Internet,


To generate your own unique reference you can do something like the following,

echo -n yourname | shasum -a256

Replace the “yourname” string with anything sort of random and you will receive your own hash you can place into your page.  I’m not suggesting any of this is new or novel I’m just interested to see if this shows up in search results.  Enjoy!
