I've been trying to block out unnecessary bots/spiders and have noticed a lot of different IP addresses on my site today that are all located in Rochester, NY. The ISP is either Frontier Communications or RoadRunner, sometimes it's a static IP, and the IP type is sometimes "corporate". I can't imagine that all of the sudden, all these people from Rochester are coming to my site and clicking on links. Is there something I should know about Rochester, NY?

Do you think these are just data hubs or something more suspicious?
suga, These determinations (due to the forum restriction of obscuring the Class D numbers) often times are quite difficult to provide accurate references to.
I do realize that you provided the obscured range as I requested, however two things of focus/comparison that you have and I don't? 1) that exact IP with the Class D included. 2) Your own raw visitor logs.
As a result, I may only take a guess on what the Class D number might be.
To add more confusion to these issues? In recent months ARIN has changed their procedures for public access (i. e., requests on IP ranges) and valid information is near impossible to retrieve (of which it was previously for at least fifteen years), this formerly valid information even included the ability to get a breakdown on assigned subnet ranges.
I'll sticky you a tracert on one of the IP's that I guessed at a Class D, whether it's accurate? I've no way of knowing.
