    Ok maybe I havent seen this yet but when did Yahoo's slurp start spidering for China? I found this in my bots file.

    Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Yahoo! Slurp China; Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Yahoo! Slurp China; http://misc.yahoo.com.cn/help.html)

    I dont believe I have ever noticed this before, has anyone else?

    Yes I've seen it on my sites too.....Not sure why a bot from China is wanting English language sites?

    Maybe it's another way of farming out all the jobs to the Far east area etc to save money....bit like when you call the bank and get someone a million miles away?? !!!!

    I could be wrong, but Yahoo have a China-Government friendly version of their SE (as do google)... so maybe it's just the Bot Yahoo uses for spidering sites to index in the China-Government 'compliant' version.

    I've been seeing it for a while now. Not sure how it picked up my English-only site. I did get a few Chinese websites linking to mine though, so maybe that's what got it all perked up?

    This is the samething I was wondering I only thought Google had a Gov Friendly SE for China. Could Yahoo be trying to tell us something. Maybe they are in the works of launching a SE in China as well.

    Yahoo is very friendly with the Chinese goverment. They know where the money is and where the big growth rate is... China! India and China are markets to aim for. Maybe wealthy Chinese will want to buy properties in Las Vegas sometime soon, mate. :)
