    216.109.121.42 / 11374 / 11374 /398.89 MB /19 May 2007 - 23:13

    Anybody know why? And what can I do about it?

    No. It doesn't. It's brand new, only 30-40 days old.
    I haven't seen any big number of back links, a few hundred directories,and around 3-4 reciprocals, that's it!
    It does have a lot of ages, but this is going on about 20 days now.

    Sorry the URL is in my profile, 124bpms.com

    I'm only going on the word of one of my associates that is telling me that this seems to be abnormal activity, because the traffic doesn't seem to match the bandwidth, however, I don't think he understands how many pages I have indexed,(over 3,000).
    Interested in more opinions after you see the site I'm referring to.
    Thanks

    Thanks. I feel much better. Someone was telling me that I was doing something wrong to eat up that much bandwidth, and it freaked me out, because I don't know any "tricks".
    I will smack him in the back of the head when I see him.
    Thanks

    I generally have more SLURP!s then any other guest on at nearly any moment. However with all of the Yahoo Bots bombarding my pages MSN bots suck more bandwidth (with HALF the hits). Though, I'm not concerned with either, as the effects on my monthly quota are minimal at worst.

    One thing I have noticed though, is that YAHOO seems to take a page into it's index, then sends out several other bots to check links individually. I've set to actually see one CRAWL my site. Googlebots on the other hand will visit a page, follow a link from that page, follow a link from that page, and so on.

    That means that one googlebot can do what it takes 20 yahoo SLURP! bots to do.

    Thanks. Still working on it, but it's a lot of fun.
    I keep hearing these words in my head from one of my associate webmasters, "..And you think you can do all that will a little blog :p ?"

    :mad:
