Interesting... My logs still show Yahoo/Slurp! hitting with frequency. I'll keep an eye on that in the future to see if there's a change.

I have just ran tail -f -n9999 /home/searchen/access-logs/searchengine.co.za |grep Slurp and no crawls from Yahoo bot any more.

xword, since Yahoo no longer runs a web spider they are no longer a search engine. Their search is outsourced to Microsoft's Bingbot.

My most recent visit from slurp ( yahoo!'s bot ) was 5 days ago..( not "spoofed" ) ..MS provide their public serps in some countries ( maybe not in all countries ? )..but they ( Yahoo! ) also still run their own "crawler"..thus you will, IMO, need to revisit your definition of "what defines a search engine" ...

I don't want anyone to think I'd want Yahoo to no longer be a search engine. Looking at my search engine logs I see roughly 27 confirmed hits from Yahoo since after I started this thread.
