Altavista's Scooter/3.3 is giving out odd referrals again msgraph msg:19395 1:17 pm on Oct 3, 2003 (gmt 0) Seems like they still haven't fixed the problem of leaving referring urls in the log files.
Nothing better than looking at log files filled with adult-themed hypened urls from a major search engine spider when your site has nothing to do at all with the referred urls.
Big advancement in technology Alta/Yahoo...

I got a burst of freakish requests from their bot early this morning. Only about a dozen in the space of 2 minutes. Other requests from the bot look fine. (in my case it didn't list off referals, but the directory/file it was seeking was definately not from my site). SEOPTI msg:19397 6:40 pm on Oct 5, 2003 (gmt 0)
