Very Strange Hotbot Results

Try this search [hotbot.lycos.com]

What on earth is going on ????

Where is hotbot getting that description from ?

I spotted this because my site [url= [hotbot.lycos.com...] also appears to have been "highjacked" in the hotbot listings.

Dodgy DNS entries perhaps, if so why the correct title from some of the sites and only the funny description ?

Yours very confused

Second URL should have read www.champdogs.co.uk [hotbot.lycos.com]

Note to Brett. I can not edit my posts, it always comes back with an invalid password.

Sorry that was the wrong URL. I will try again. Champdogs [hotbot.lycos.com].

If I mess this up again, just go to hotbot and search for www.champdogs.co.uk and you will see what i mean :)

Interesting results there are #'s 8-9. I clicked on one of those links and it had the meta description of the webpage, but the page shown was a domain registration service. Upon viewing source, it was in frames and who knows exactly what the heck is going on. I didn't do an ip lookup, but the ip # is there in the source code if you want to do more digging.
