Land of 1,000 bots



Wow, a whole month without posting. In that time, we broke the 1,000 bot mark, added new features for researching user agents by IP, and added a nifty Donation button to the top of the screen for anyone that feels compelled to help keep the lights on here. We have alot to report on, so here's the high points:
  • We spent some time enhancing our directory to allow user agent research by IP address. We did this by launching our new User Agent Ip Directory. When viewing an IP's details, we provide a listing of user agents that have been detected from that IP, as well as an ARIN WHOIS lookup on the IP to see who owns the actual IP or IP range.
    In addition, when viewing a user agent's details, you can click known IP's from that user agent to see other user agents from that ip.
  • The mysterious VadixBot visited us also. Unfortunately, we don't have any information about this bot. In fact, when we google it, our site is the first result, and that was less than helpful. related...

This puts us at 76,859 user agents and 1,020 bots.
