How can I create user account and why do I need it?Creating an user account is very easy. In order to set up the account, you have to fill out the registration form and send it. After that you will receive on your mailbox the confirmation message with verification link. To activate your account you will have to click confirmation link and if everything is ok, you can than log in to the system.
Loging to the Updowner system requires information given during user registration process. When you are logged in, you are allowed to change some account information, register sites, block it or edit som of its content.
• Verification file
After log in, download verification file and place it in the highest-level directory of your site. You can use one verification file for all your sites. Don't change file name or file content. It should be available for the browsers.
• Meta tag
Place a meta tag to the head section of your site. Meta tag structure should be: <meta name="Updowner-verification" content="e2edd8f06990fe9ecf66084af08bb450">. You can use one meta tag for all your sites. After log in you can copy it from your admin panel.
After that you have to just type the domain name into the field and send the form. If verification is ok, the site will be shown in your account. If site already exists on Updowner statistics, registration will proceed immedietly and from now on you will be able to manage your site. In other case (if your site is not listed in the statistics), you have to wait several hours (max 48h) before it will be checked and added to the system.
The Updowner system also checks verfification during site editing or blocking.
• The most common verification problems. During registration process, Updowner system tries to connect with the site in order to check if there is a verification file on site server or meta tag in site HTML. If there are any problems with connection, or unique verification code was changed, site will not be registered. Time in which Updowner tries to connect with your site is limited, so if connection with your site is very weak, it can cause registration failure.
• You cannot register site, if it's already registered.
If you cannot register your site and you are absolutely sure that you did everything correctly, don't worry, just conntact Updowner admin.
• Register your site with us.
If you have registered your site, you can block it in your admin panel (this is the quickest method). In a "Description" section there is an information about the site status, you can block or unblock your site there. Your site can be also blocked by Updowner admin, but if you feel that your site was blocked unfairly, please conntact us.
• A robots.txt file.
A robots.txt file restricts access to your site by robots that crawl the web. These bots are automated, and before they access pages of a site, they check to see if a robots.txt file exists, and if it prevents them from accessing certain pages. You need a robots.txt file only if your site includes content that you don't want to indexed by bots. If you want to let bots index everything in your site, you don't need a robots.txt file (not even an empty one). Updownerbot won't crawl pages blocked by robots.txt. In order to use a robots.txt file, you'll need to have access to the root of your domain (if you're not sure, check with your web hoster).
If you want to block Updownerbot from indexing your site type in your robots.txt:
• Meta tags.
The noindex meta standard is described at http://www.robotstxt.org/meta.html. This method is useful if you don't have root access to your server, as it allows you to control access to your site on a page-by-page basis.
To prevent all robots from indexing your site, place the following meta tag into the <head> section of your index page:
<meta name="robots" content="noindex">
To prevent only Updownerbot from indexing:
<meta name="Updownerbot" content="noindex">
