Hello All-

I want to make sure that my site is being indexed by Yahoo! Slurp. What is the name of the robot that I should look for in my logs/stats.

I know that the name of Googles Robot is Googlebot. Just not sure about Yahoo.

I looked for "slurp" in my log files but couldn't see it anywhere in last three or four days or so
