I, like lots of people, have been hit several times lately by the inktomisearch spider (slurp). What does it do? Why aren't my other sites that are linked to my site getting spidered? Does it only check for new content, or what?

Well, I never paid for inclusion, but my index page is listed.

Maybe because I am linked from a client site and he does pay for inclusion?

What does it do- well, someone with raw logs can report what files it crawls...

Maybe there is a hidden index somehere being prepared for yahoo with all this crawling.

I paid for Inktomi back in November. Usually it would grab my robots.txt and my index page every couple of days. Now it seems to be crawling deeper through my site.
