ok, i just came up with this tonight. maybe i'm slow. ;)
anyway, i was wondering about the pompos search engine and reading some forums. one (here i think) asked if all the bandwidth it was sucking was worth the traffic from the engine.
looking at me own stats, it wasn't worth it, unless i wanted to gamble on pompos becoming the next google someday.
looking at my stats further was interesting, though:
searchengine A - 52,000 spider hits, 15,000 visitors from the search engine .com
searchengine B - 18,000 spider hits, 160 visitors
searchengine C - 9,000 spider hits, 1,900 visitors
searchengine D - 53,000 spider hits, 0 visitors
can you guess which are which?
some i keep around because maybe they'll be bigger in the future. what is your personal cut-off point for a spider?
Final note: this may belong in 'Foo'?
