General / removal information
Some quick facts about the site:
- camdiscover.com is an autonomous web crawler, just like a web search engine.
It finds and adds the webcam images to the site automatically. Please do
not be offended about being added to the site without notice, it's an automatic service just like
Google's image search.
- The site fetches images from each cam a maximum of 3 times per day, so
it is gentle on bandwidth. It is not a full archive site. It does not
hotlink images, they are fetched and re-served.
- Discovered cams are categorised and information such as the cam name and web
site URL are entered by site visitors.
Why you should have your cam on camdiscover.com:
- Providing that the information is known, it will increase traffic
to your web site.
- Linking into your cam page on camdiscover.com will increase
your rankings in the top cams list, that shows on the main page. This will also
increase traffic to your site.
- You can link into your camdiscover.com cam page as a mini archive.
- You can keep track of which pages hotlink your images (eg cam portals).
- It will increase exposure of you and your cam to the greater net. It's
just another kind of cam portal.
Why you should NOT have your cam on camdiscover.com:
- The cam image is to be used on your site only, or requires a paid licence.

promptly remove a cam if requested.

past images, with at least 8 hours between each fetch.
