    Snoops for big corporations. If they're snooping around your site, they are only there looking for anything their clients can sue you for or at least send a cease & desist order. Nothing they do will benefit your site.

    Block them with a robots.txt, global.asa or .htaccess file.

    Yep, they showed up as a referrer.

    I found out that their bot is BDFetch and added that to my robots.txt file.

    Thanks

    Wayne (or whomever knows the answer)

    I looked up their IP using their domain name.

    If I want to disallow their IP using .htaccess I put the following:

    deny from 204.92.59.13

    Correct?

    Sorry, don't know the correct syntax for .htaccess. All my sites are on Windows servers so I use global.asa

    Check your logs to make sure the robot IP is the same as the sites IP. Might not be the same or even in the same IP block.

    I think brandimensions.com is polite enough to obey the robots.txt file unlike Cyveillance, the rudest of all the snooper bots. They totally ignore it. I like to send them off to follow an ASP-generated trail of files. It ties them up for a while as they read up to 20 thousand nonsense files before they give up.
