Ask Jeeves hitting thousands of pages on a 12 page site...

    My new site has about 12 pages right now, but Ask Jeeves has hit it over 10,000 times so far this month:

    AskJeeves 11725+4 48.20 MB 05 Jul 2005 - 16:31
    SEMrush
    Over 48 megabytes of data transfered...google has hit the site 31 times this month.

    Anyone know why?

    I have banned ask from most of my sites/pages because of this, eats bw like hell for 2 visitors a month. I have banned it on robots and only allow a few pages of the site.

    reminds me when we would ring people doorbell and run and hide. The least jeeves could do is leave a flaming bag of poo so I knew he stopped by.

    I think they must be building a new index or something because I have seen exactly the same as everyone else.

    So you know, Ask (Teoma) supports the Crawl-Delay.

    Any way to tell Mr. Jeeves to click a link while he's visiting? :D

    I do get an occasional visitor from him, but not many.

    On one of my sites, Ask accounts for 1% of all search engine referals, so they aren't really that important anymore, imo.

    Yeah I dont really pay attention to my stats since so many bots spider my site, but askjeeves does spider a lot of pages at once.
