The 2007 bots are in!



Now that 2007 is here, we have 15 new bots to show off. Here are the most interesting in the bunch:
  • Something reporting the user agent Hackzilla /0.8.15 came to call on our sites, and from visiting it's home site, we are not sure if it's a bot or browser. We're calling it a bot for now unless we learn otherwise. related...
  • The PageBull search engine sent a bot to our sites, so maybe we'll start seeing traffic from them. related...
  • No clue what means, but 4.Platz im GIGA-Homepage-Award visited us. Their site appears to be in German, and Google Translate didn't work on it, so from the best we can tell, it has something to do with a homepage award. related...
  • Another elusive Sleipnir has emerged, this time the official version is Sleipnir/2.49. related...
  • Vacobot is another new one, and the URL from it's user agent was down when we tried to visit it, so give it a try and maybe it will be up then. related...
Kicking off the new year, we have 52,551 user agents and 735 bots
