Thanks. I didn't have it blocked or allowed. Can't remember if I've ever seen it.

Slap in the middle of a BT broadband range, albeit a static range, as far as I can tell. Company called ayima according to DNS.
Actually, I have several bad hits plus another small sub-range blocked in 81.144/16 but 34 was the worst at 64 hits in a couple of months. Not sure if the others are "oops" or real bot-ish but highest number of hits on any one IP was 3 so benefit given.
There is actually a fair amount of bad behaviour within the static BT range 81.128/11 - sadly, being in the UK with UK customers, I can't block them all. :(
Nothing showing here in the 83.146/16 range.

Ayima are a well known SEO outfit in the UK. Most of their staff are easily reachable on Twitter. Several are often at SES and SMX.
News to me that they have a bot.

Block 126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52 - that will fix them until they get another set of IPs.

I allow wotbox.com as I have a lot of pages with high listings, although since I added them to my whitelist I have seen only a trickle of traffic directly from their SERP.
