Winks, DataFountains, Hijacks, and Tool - what's the connection?



The answer is... these are all new bots on the site this week! From user agent hacking to shout-out advertising via user agent, here's the scoop:
  • Wink.com sent it's bot WinkBot/0.06 to index our content, and likely send us some traffic from it's search engine related...
  • Marcus Walker gave himself a shoutout in our user agent logs by proclaming to be #1 in Business Networking. Yes, it's pretty pathetic, but it's creative at least. Who knows - maybe Marcus is a pioneer in User Agent advertising, and he'll get the last laugh once he's made a billion dollars. related...
  • Not much to say about page_prefetcher. Google doesn't even have a result when I search on this, so maybe we'll be the first in a few days. related...

Now 10 days into February, we have 58,088 user agents and 790 bots
