MSNBot keeps using my search to find my control panel
Keeps searching for admin/

Both MSNBot and Yandex have used my site's search feature to look up the term 'admin/' (without quotes) where it I can only presume that they presume my control panel is located at. I've verified that these are in fact actual legitimate search engines.

So what would the point be?

For the sake of completeness:

Can you post a couple of full log entries illustrating the phenomenon?

Is your site search a separate page, or a box that appears on every page? What about search results? If there are any free-standing pages involved, are they no-index?

The search engine on my site simply has a form on every page (except my front page). As far as I know I don't have any links to any search pages. The search method is GET.

Here is the meta robots element for the search section...


<meta name="robots" content="noarchive, noindex, follow" />


Here are the entries, MSNbot, Yandex and Baidu...
