Was looking back through the logs and noticed that the slurp bot wasn't visiting during all the google changes. Once the freshbot showed up so did slurpy again...anyone else notice the same tie in? Was unusual as my old buddy slurpy had been pretty active.

>during all the google changes

Not sure when you see those changes starting. I can however verify Slurp has been a regular visitor over the last weeks.

During the time google bot was dormant during the update?, so was slurp. Only became active when freshbot restarted couple of weeks ago. Strange occurence in the logs, just wondering if coincidence or that slurp stopped crawling at the same time. Would add a little different light on the changes we are seeing at google if co-ordinated. Seen the same sort of activity from both bots retracing 404s in databases over previous 3 months. Another conspiracy theory, or a business arraingement....only time will tell.
