Hi

I just found that bot hiting my website today:

YahooSeeker/CafeKelsa (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; FreeBSD ;yahoo dash slurp dash h dash webmaster at yahoo dash inc dot com ) (KHTML, like Gecko)

What do you think this is?

Konqueror/3.2 that part makes me think it's a browser. With the Konqueror browser you are able to set the user agent to pretty much anythign you want.

The other quite possible answer is it may be a reviewer from Yahoo inspecting your site. Have you recently added your url to the directory?

The FreeBSD part makes this even more plausible because Yahoo is known to be a freebsd user.

Mack.

Last week I had two visits from this UA. Called robots.txt, index page and two more pages that by their content I would associate with email harvesters.
The IP reverts to Y! hotjobs dot com.
