|Way of using .htaccess to only allow some bots ?|
| 8:11 pm on Jan 18, 2011 (gmt 0)|
Using .htaccess is there any way of only allowing the legit robots to visit please?
Any help much appreciated.

Yes, but you will have to define what you consider to be legit - by UA and by IP.
Armed with that information you can start to craft some rules, and latterly some code.

Thanks g1smd - which bots would generally be considered as legit please? Google, MSN, Yahoo, any others?

Those you wish to allow - each webmaster has their own preferences.
There is no quick fix, you will need to study discussions in the Spider Forum:
