I'm pretty confused and speculating on a connection.
About 10 days ago I did submit 6 pages from a customers site to Ink, via Position Tech. The pages were spidered by Slurp (only the submitted pages) and got indexed in MSN, AOL, etc.
In my stats I now have this site www.internap.com/measurements/readme.html as a heavy referer.
The page has no links to my site, and has a message:
"Dear Web Site Administrator:
We are conducting a performance crawl. The aim of this crawl is to improve access and performance from our customers to your web site, as well as to the rest of the internet...."
Internap is an Inktomi partner: [internap.com...]
Is this a "Inktomi Mercator" or can anybody figure out any relationship or impact of this constellation...
One guess is Inktomi anti cloak as the text goes on: "The impact on server load and traffic should be minimal as we only download a small portion of your main home page." and it actually only hits the main (index) page...
Well this is only guesswork and brobably some of you has a simple explanation...
