Hot Summer Bots



The bots continue to roll in this summer, so here's a catch-up on the last few weeks:
  • Spock Crawler visited us on it's "mission to index every single human being on the planet" (no, seriously - this was taken straight from their website). Whatever their service is, it is invitation only for now. related...
  • Pete-Spider/1.1 is a new spider that dropped in, and the top google results for this user agent point to our site. Since we have no idea what this spider does, it appears nobody does. related...
  • Another new bot, ilial/Nutch-0.9 dropped in, containing a Nutch-0.9 engine and owned by "Ilial, Inc. is a Los Angeles based Internet startup company." According to their site, ilial is a new search engine built from venture capital that has technology to redefine the online advertising industry. related...
  • Don't forget our new iPhone category - it now has a grand total of 17 user agents. If you have an iPhone, please visit our site so we can capture the user agent and add it to the list. related...
This leaves us at 86,589 total user agents in the database, and 1,102 are bots.
