I havenít been thinking about this botnet thing as I have shut it down and is totally invisible to my stats, AdSense etc. and my serverís can easily handle the load.
The botnet did start hitting a new webpage, so that brings the count to five webpageís being hit.
I am however, recording the botnetís activity. There was a huge up tick a couple of weeks ago. I started receiving at least 10,000+ page views an hour up from about 1000 and hour.
Then the botnet started to trickle off page views on May 2 at about 6:00pm est.. There was another significant downtick Yesterday (May 4) at about 9:00 am.
I am curious as to what Google thinks of this..
