I’ve been trying to find out who or what is spidering my web sites lately. Every time I try pinging or tracert on 188.8.131.52 I get an incomplete report. I’m at the point where I might try to block the IP in my robot.txt files on my sites becuase I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a spam spider or not… (this IP is showing up in mass on a message board I run – something like 3-15 incidents at a time)
But thena gain, if it’s some new Search ENgine project or a reknown searchengine (googlebot, MSNBot, etc) with a hidden WhoIs, that would cause problems.
Is anyone else getitng a lot of hits from this IP lately?
