Started on the 4th this month? Or am I just getting a late crawl?

Just looked at my weblogs and they are crawling my raw directory.

Threw a dummy index.htm file in all of my directories to try to prevent this from happening again.

Hope it works....or maybe I should just keep my server clean.....

There isn't any special crawl going on. The Googlebot can and will spider your files all month long, so don't be surprised when you see her tracks in your logs.

It's not unusual for sites to still be getting crawled.

Always keep sites clean, I understand a directory index that shows the file structure only is a hole that can be exploited. You can do pages with links to other parts of the site or the index page and use <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">

The October Everflux thread [webmasterworld.com] already started. Let us know if you see any immediate changes as a result of this, we like to keep track.
