So I added this one and it appeared to keep the bot at bay.
Looking at my logs this morning, I found the spider back again trying to request each of the 50,000+ pages I have.
It's using this user agent string:
from ip address 188.8.131.52
My robots.txt file has become very long - (20kB) and the entry is toward the bottom. Would this cause it to be skipped?
What else can I try?
This issue was discussed in 2005. Sorry to hear the issue is still around. Good news is that the solution suggested then will still work - use htaccess or isapi rewrite to deny it. Check out the old discussion:
