Hi, I tried to ban yahooseeker from crawling my site, I used robots.txt: User-agent: YahooSeeker Disallow: / All other crawlers obey my robots file, except yahooseeker.
YahooSeeker is still crawling my site like crazy! the ip is: 22.214.171.124 I checked this ip, it never read robots file. the log file is like: YahooSeeker/1.0+(compatible;+Mozilla+4.0;+MSIE+5.5;+http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/shop/merchant/) - 200 335
but another ip: 126.96.36.199 reads the robots file then left. the log file is like: HTTP/1.0 YahooSeeker/1.0+(compatible;+Mozilla+4.0;+MSIE+5.5;+http://search.yahoo.com/yahooseeker.html) - 200 233
Are they both Yahooseeker? Anyone met this before and any suggestions is really appreciated.
BTW, since my site doesn't sell any products, there should be no negative effects on my site if I ban yahooseeker?
