If you mean, "to a certain area" on your site you could always password protect that area and there's always nofollow,noindex and of coarse you can always 301 that traffic to my site ;-)

You can add a delay to the Yahoo bot. It too is causing major problems on my forums. It seems to visit every day. Considering I get so little traffic from them I am seriously considering blocking the Yahoo bot altogether. I am running with a delay of over 1 minute but still get issues with too many concurrent connections!:(

Alternatively HTACCESS the page. Block the Bots from the area with a spider trap.

Yea.. the Yahoo! bot is ridiculous. It eats bandwidth like mad. I used to hate it because even though it was hitting my site like crazy, Yahoo! still got my site's indexing ALL wrong.

Until the latest update.

They finally got everything right and now I don't mind their bot feeding itself.

Misterjonez... you are not really clear. What do you want to block?

- traffic from a bot or
- traffic from a specific website or
- traffic from a specific country?

a certain area would mean a place, so would want to block a certain country from viewing my site, are there anyways to do that other than blocking that country's IP?

is Yahoo offering anything like not showing my site on a search query coming from a certain country?
