April Bots Bring May Traffic... (we hope)



April bots continue to hit our sites, and hopefully the bandwidth we loan to these robots this month will bring us more traffic in May. One can hope, right? For all we know, these bots are just ripping off content from our sites, and taking it for their own. Anyways, here's the highlights for the last week's worth of bots:
  • Dan Matan's site attempted to inject HTML for a link to his website. As usual, we don't permit free-loading on our site for links or script from user agents. As always, we recommend you protect your site from hijack attempts by stripping or encoding HTML or script that clients can input. related...
This leaves us with 70,300 user agents and 941 bots.
