The world of IM (Internet Marketing) and MMO (Make Money Online) can be a bit dirty and somewhat incestious of an industry. Think about it (you know you can’t help it…) Seriously, marketers climbing all over each trying to get on top like some kind of pyramid. Then you have marketers all networking with each other with their links all hanging out there for everyone to see (Eww disgusting). Marketers be all like, “I’ll promote for you if you promote for me?” Mmm yeah, I’ll reciprocate your next product launch so hard!
Now, you got everyone launch jacking and to a lesser extent pagejacking each other off. It ain’t all a big orgy of sort when it comes to marketing is it? Let me paint this picture in your mind, obviously you’ve never been with your significant other or that special someone in your life and blew a large wad of bills all over their face huh? Thats where the term “money shot” originated. Yep as marketers we loaned that term out to another popular online industry and capitalized by still earning interest on it lol. Sorry, haven’t published a blog post in about 6 months so I got a lot pent up I gotta get out.
In short, Pagejacking is defined as the behavior of stealing high-ranking web page content from another site and placing it on your site in the hopes of increasing your own site’s search engine rankings. Pagejacking is yet another shady way of gaming the search engines and, as such, its use should be strongly discouraged.
Who is Brett Rutecky?
However, for those in the Internet Marketing and Make Money Money niche than you may have heard of Brett Rutecky. If not, he is an established online marketer and software developer that is regarded as somewhat of an Internet Watchdog in the online marketing space that I’ve written about and promoted his product launches several times throughout the previous year. Brett Rutecky prides himself on providing value through honest and in-depth affiliate product reviews along with his own Internet Marketing product launches through his background as a software developer and working knowledge as a marketer so when he released a WordPress plugin called, “Jack Jacker” that claimed to make it a lot more easy for people interested in niche, affiliate, and CPA marketing to get both traffic and clicks by ethically stealing the content and authority from other high-ranking sites I was a bit sceptical and shocked to say the least!
Is Jack Jacker Plugin Legal?
According to my research, unlike most methods involving Pagejacking, the use of Jack Jacker isn’t illegal in my honest opinion since the website you are jacking doesn’t use iframes to reproduce content and meta data onto your domain in order to deceive visitors and increase search ranking on major search engines.
Being the responsible and ethical group of people marketers are known for…
like me, you maybe wondering but what does your moral compass indicate?
Sure, you maybe thinking anything for a quick buck? After all, most websites even clearly state in their terms of policy they do NOT allow third party user to reproduce their content. Therefore, it should be consider as a violation of copyright, right?
Typically, yes however as mentioned previously, the Jack Jacker WordPress Plugin does not use iframes in order to embed the jacked site into another via a frame and therefore does not reproduce a copy of the content from the jacked site. Furthermore, the domain is not masked in order to deceive either visitors that visit the jacked site or search engines into indexing page descriptor information (a.k.a META Data). It merely renders an overall on the marketer’s own hosted site.
In all honestly, there are marketing strategies I would consider much more shady and unethical than this. Off the top of my head, cookie stuffing for one (Mmm now I’m hungry). How do we actually know that gift cards sent are actually recieved and not just emails collected? Ever made a purchase at a retailer and been asked for your email or applied for job online? Of course they seem to flat out ignore or be exempted from the CAN-SPAM Act as you’ll continuously be marketed to even if you didn’t get the job. BOOM! Blew your mind with that thought eh?
How to do Pagejacking Right?
If you wanna play it safe than simply reach out to the site owner you plan to pagejack and be transparent with them. If you have consent than you have nothing to worry about. Pagejacking really depends on how you use it. When you advertise with this method you should seriously consider if by pagejacking someone’s content, authority, and/or reputation if by doing so, if that somehow takes away somebody’s ability to express themselves by pretending to be them?
Jack Jacker simply renders a Call-to-Action affiliate offer overly over your own hosted domain and traffic with an affiliate offer that does not reproduce their content of which you are not being compensated in any way for essentially promoting by brining brand awareness to. This creates value due to it being a win-win situation all around for the vendor as it promotes the affiliate product, the page jacked site owner as it provides brand awareness and traffic, and you since it saves money.
This is an excellent shortcut to content creation and nice alternative to content curation but you can’t just siphon off other people’s hard work. You still need to put in the work of creating great content in order to increase your own domain’s rank, traffic, and brand.
Wrapping Up on the Topic of PageJacking
The Jack Jacker plugin by Brett Rutecky was developed with the intention of being sold however, after giving some thought he decided the best way to help people make money online was to just give it away at no cost. It makes it way more easier for people interested in niche, affiliate, and CPA marketing to get both traffic and click by doing what great marketers are encouraged to do and that is to use the power of leverage. I strongly recommend you pickup the Jack Jacker plugin through my link in order to gain instant content and authority in any niche as it is 100% FREE!
