I was wondering if Yahoo Slurp was still crawling websites. Actually I wanted to see if the Yahoo Site Explorer database was still getting updated. I checked the [ysearchblog.com ] and they have not posted an article since October 19, 2009 Is anyone still seeing activity from slurp?

I got links from forum to one of the sites I run shown in Yahoo Site Explorer. The post where that page is ref'd is from July 22nd. The page itself got hit by Slurp next day and in Site Explorer as well, as well as in Yahoo index(Ranking as #1 :)). Other than that, the bot is on the site daily.

Bing and Yahoo are more active than Google... try harder? On a weekly basis these visits are < 2% of bandwidth so still happy to have them since > 22% of hits come from those two. And rising. Adopting a wait and see before inserting a crawl-delay.
