During the past 48 hours, starting approx when google began pandalizing the UK, my server has been hit by a scraping botnet - one IP per page (all, as far as I can tell, rejected).
Now, is that due to some scraper trying to get at our best sites from the server so they can rise to the top of the UK SERPS? Or is it coincidence?
Or is it google running a botnet to see if we're still working? Well, they might! :)
