If you started working with WordPress you probably got to that moment when you heard for Nulled-Warez themes and plugins and you probably downloaded some of them too.
In this blog post I will explain everything about nulled themes, I will give you example why you shouldn’t download them and I will answer you few more questions.
What’s a nulled script?
Nulled scripts – themes – plugins, are all scripts with removed author copy protection.
So, are they bad for your site?
If you look at the legal terms, it’s not legal to have nulled theme or plugin on your site, and you could easily get sued for that if someone realize that you make money with their nulled script.
“But I dont’ care about all the ‘sued’ stuff, is it bad for my site quality”?
Hmm, they are not ‘bad’ if they do not have any malicious codes inside, but if they have one, they could be really bad for your site and your content.
Why is that so important not to use Warez scripts on your website?
– That’s because you could ruin your site forever, and Google will maybe never rank you.
How can nulled theme or plugin destroy my website?
When someone buy theme or plugin and put it on warez sites he doesn’t do it because he loves to share, he upload it to take advantage of you, user who downloaded this script.
What can someone get when I install this script on my site?
– Well, first thing he can do is to get backlinks from your blog unknowingly.
So, he has some website and he puts his website link somewhere inside your theme, and if you are not expert in php it will be hard for you to find this link.
So if 1000 people install this theme or plugin he will get 1000+ backlinks on his site.
That person can also get access to your wp admin and take over your website.
So he can upload some ‘virus’ to send info back to him so he will get your username and password as soon as you login there for the first time.
One more thing that someone can do is redirect your website pages to spam links, and that could be 100% bad for your SEO and Google will never ever put you in search results.
How can this person make money from you?
If you download his script and if he gets your admin access, once your site start making money with Adsense, Amazon or any other program, he can easily change your Adsense code and put his, he can put his Amazon links instead of yours…
What do I get when I buy theme or plugin?
First thing you get when you buy theme or plugin are full Updates and all new versions with Bug fixed, and you will get more Updates every month and your theme or plugin will become better and better.
If you buy some SEO plugin, updates are very important for you because they could give you better place on Google search results, and if you have nulled plugin there are huge chances that you will end up with the same SEO ‘optimization’ for the rest of your life.
When you buy theme on Themeforest, or MyThemeShop, or any other place you will get lifetime support for every single day for the rest of your life.
So if you do not know how to install something, they will do it for you.
If you want to change some part of your theme, for Ex: menu position, thumbnail position.. they will do it for you.
Most of that Nulled themes packages comes with only main part of FULL Package and that’s only theme files.
When you buy theme you will get Demo content, and that can save you hours of setting up your website.
You will get all PSD files, and if you want to change design, logo or anything else, this will save you tons of work.
You will also get all documentation, startup PDFs and everything else that will make your theme installation easier.
Most important thing:
You do not have to worry about anything, you just install your theme and you can use it on all your websites for the rest of your life.
You will never think about legal consequences and that’s probably the most important part, because you do not want to build your blog or website for 2-3-5 years and when theme owner sue you your hosting will delete your website in no time.
