Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I tried a google on the UA and it only returuned three hits. Surprising all with the same 130. IP..
Tried some variations of the UA by adding the word software with no success.
Que Pas is Spanish and according to a translation means "as it passes,"
hoefully it has passed right over me ;)
[rlm@abu data]$ host 184.108.40.206
Host 220.127.116.11.in-addr.arpa not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
... and it hasn't a WHOIS entry:
[rlm@abu data]$ whois 18.104.22.168
[Redirected to rwhois.llnw.net:4321]
[Unable to connect to remote host]
Fancy that. It's at llnw.net -- Lawrence Livermore Labs. Slimebags don't have to be responsible for their ubercrawler. We've blocked the suckers at the firewall.
QUePasa hit me today, but only for robots.txt and my index page. Just in case someone was wondering if it even checks robots.txt. Hard to say if it follows what it sees there since it just spidered index and left. For what its worth, it didn't fall into my spider trap.
Sarahk, your script looks cool. I'm gonna give it a try.
in english and spanish.
I guess it finds the meta tag:
<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="EN">
and moves on as it is for the hispanic community in America.
I've registered. Can't be many who do because I actually got my sarahk username! Aaah, it's pay per click. Doesn't even give you a positive balance to get started - ie to see if it's worth throwing money at.
I won't be bothering. Still at least it's not malicious!
This frequency and behavior and seemed similar to the Yandex spider ( Russian search engine ), so that seems consistent with QuepasaCreep being from a Latin American search engine.
"que pasa" means "what goes on?"if interrogative, but I think it's intended to regard "(this is) What is happening", as an actuality information.
My english is pretty bad, but I will try to translate the "quepasa" corporate information
"Desde sus inicios, quepasa ha tenido como base de operaciones la ciudad de Phoenix, Arizona y ahora opera oficinas en algunas áreas de México y el resto de Latinoamérica."
Since its beginnings, quepasa had its headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona, and now it's operating some offices in the Mexico City area and the rest of Latin America.
It appears to be a US Search Engine mainly focused on spanish - latin people.
