To detect a Yahoo! reviewer you need to be looking up the host. If host is something like surf.yahoo.com (replace surf as appropriate) then it's a good chance it's a Yahoo! reviewer. Sometimes you can also tell from the referring string. They also normally seem to browse with Netscape not IE.
The other entry you will find in your logs is add1.yahoo.com (or poss. add.yahoo.com). This is a link checker that will retrieve the URL you have just submitted to make sure it's valid. The timing of this entry will coincide with your submission.
DavidP, I've seen the surf.yahoo.com before and we do have sites listed in Yahoo. Right I forgot about them using Netscape will keep that in mind. Thanks about the link checker, will watch for this.
"The Yahoo-1.0 is the branding of the IE version that was used."
So this is just the browser version used in this visit?
