Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
SI3000 and J4000+or- all seem to be more interested in home pages and/or index pages
So, does anyone know what the different INK spiders are doing on their visits???
That's what I have observed so far. I'm not sure how useful this is but if anyone finds the rest of the puzzle pieces, please let me know.
Any input would be most appreciated.
These are some of the ink spiders I've had on my server yesterday (this is across 5 sites):
Name: si520.inktomi.com = 1
Name: j100.inktomi.com = 1
Name: j5000.inktomisearch.com = 1
Name: si3000.inktomi.com = 1
Name: si3003.inktomi.com = 1
Name: si4001.inktomi.com = 1
Name: si4002.inktomi.com = 1
Name: j5004.inktomisearch.com = 1
Name: j5006.inktomi.com = 1
Name: wm3021.inktomi.com = 1
Name: q5100.inktomi.com = 1
Name: y1501.inktomi.com = 1
That's one of the reason I think INK doesn't care how many pages you submit in a day (but that could always change).
I saw the same unidentified agent with an Exodus communications IP crawl about a day and a half before the first hit. I have not been seeing identified Ink spiders in awhile on sites that have gotten listed. The only identified spider has been the dreaded Slurp/si on sites not being indexed.
