If your website is generated using ASP or something, make the homepage and 
the page you suspect will be hit all the time a flat HTML page. (e.g. save 
database calls and ASP calls - all depending on your setup ofcourse)
Or host the package that will be downloaded somewhere else and link to that 
(even under a different domain name, not many people will notice)
