Slurp has been pretty thirsty of late, a lot of folks have seen heavy activity.
Has it only requested robots.txt, not anything else? If so, you might want to give it a quick check to make sure you're not inadvertently blocking Slurp.

I been trying to figure out way, canīt find reason.
The same happends to me, from 1/1 till 12/1 they didnīt spider the robots.txt at all or any other pages.
And since the 13/1 untill today they are spidering the robots.txt every day, some days only once, other 3-4 and one day 14 days..........
This is my robotfile:
As well I did save it in linux mode and uploaded it in ascii or something like that, to make sure itīs correctly, but they keep on spidering only the robots.txt. I have another post on it named why does Inktomi spiders me, where you can see I wrote them and they gave me their link to their websearch-guidelines.............

I just read in an spanish site some very interesting thing.
They said, but donīt know why, that when slurp spider the robots.txt file is always like this:
"Mozilla/5.0 (Slurp/si; firstname.lastname@example.org; [inktomi.com...]
and when spider rest of site ítīs like this:
"Mozilla/5.0 (Slurp/cat; email@example.com; [inktomi.com...]
The diference are in Slurp/si; and Slurp/cat,
just checked, all my spidered robots file are with slurp/si
That means there are two diferent spiders?
and that slurp/cat maybe not started to work properly yet?

My robots.txt is very basic and valid and it doesn't cause problems for other bots so I don't think its keeping slurp out.
I checked another sites logs and found that slurp is indexing pages with (Slurp/cat) and robots files with (Slurp/si).
Looks like I need to wait for Slurp/si's big brother to visit. Hopefully it's only a matter of time.
