    Lightbulb Webmerge free pages?
    Hello,

    I am currently using the trial version of webmerge. I noticed that on each detail page generated there are two bits of information.

    1. In the header: <meta name="generator" content="Fourth World WebMerge 2.4">
    and

    2. In the footer: This page was made with 4W WebMerge

    Will this information be eliminated in the licensed version?

    I figure this info would definitely raise a duplicate flag with the search engines?

    I'm basically looking for "webmerge" tag free generated pages. Would any licensed webmerge user care to enlighten me on what their pages contain?

    Thanks kindly,

    Jim

    Of course. Once licensed that becomes optional. We do have a surprising number of people who turn that on, but most prefer it off and we honor that.

    I doubt Google or any other SE targets pages for removal because the webmaster values their time and uses modern tools instead of hand-coding. With WebMerge users like the London Review of Books, MacWorld Magazine, BMI Music Publishing, Oak Ridge National Labs, and the US Library of Congress, Google would have a tough time substantiating such a position.

    Duplicate content is flagged because it's duplicated, not because of a generator tag.

    While it would be possible to use WebMerge (and most other web production tools) to make sites that are little more than keyword fodder, take a look at our Gallery:
    http://www.fourthworld.com/products/...e/gallery.html

    Those sites are making money because, like most successful affiliates, they recognize that getting hits is only half the battle; the other half is converting those hits to sales by providing an engaging shopping experience.

    Any site that adds unique value to the web will not likely be penalized by Google. And any site that doesn't risks an unnecessarily low conversion rate.
