Aim-pro Newsletter: robots.txt and too many urls

 8:32 am on Jun 6, 2000 (gmt 0)

Checkout this months Aim-Pro newsletter. Very interesting reading on how to detect if your domain is still banned by Altavista. Thanks BK, Seth.

Okay it's official -- I'm brain dead. Sorry Brett, it was right in front of my eyes!

That was BK's and Rick's brain child, I was definitely pleased with the results, I think it helps alot to explain why AV's been handling robot.txt wierd for some domains.

Oh ok, thanks Rick. I thought you were in on that Seth, my mistake. That is great trick. They didn't sign it other than mention BK.

I don't have access to any domains that Alta has banned. Those that they did, we got lifted in April and it has been smooth sailing ever since.

jilly been there - done that

BK, you done any more work along these lines, or do we have to wait for the next newsletter?

Well, I never take my eyes off AV for too long - they always have something new in the works to make life interesting. :)

The thing I find most interesting at the moment is the banning or blocking of the WPG domains. Brent's explaination regarding AV claiming that his distributor's pages were too similar to his own is interesting.

Naturally the claim doesn't hold water if we look at www.mirc.com , www.mirc.co.uk , and a dozen other mirrors of the exact same content pages. What I'm doing is seeing whether or not there is any bias or detection of identical pages across multiple domains.

Results will take a little tme, of course, but the way I see it, AV have "targeted" Brent Winters' business and are using bluff and bull to hide behind. If it can happpen to him it can happen to us, so I'm going to try to burst this bubble before it lands on the rest of us.
