Amazonaws.com is in my referral logs a lot lately!

 11:41 pm on Apr 10, 2011 (gmt 0)

I see more and more visits from compute1.amazonaws.com in my server referral logs on numerous sites. In fact, on some days Amazonaws is a high percentage source of traffic going to our lower traffic and new websites.

Before I blamed that on mysterious so called 'Twitter Swarm' activity but lately the sites seeing so many amazonaws.com visits in their logs do not appear to have been involved in any Tweets or mentioned on Twitter.

Anone know anything about this?

Amazon web services - you do any affiliate marketing?

We have a huge thread, newest of several, about AmazonAWS and it's a real eye-opener.

You'll probably block the Amazon AWS IPs after reading much of that thread because nothing really good ever comes from there.

most of the regulars in the Search Engine Spider Identification forum will certainly be blocking the AWS IP's

they are one of many large sources of pests!

as far as i can, i try to not waste processing power on them.
