    New (to me) Google behavior
    Google normally sends 3 or 4 different Googlebots to check my domains - these bots read a total of 5 pages a minute and they read my pages and stop at my nofollow commands. Starting yesterday Google has added 3 additional bots to the group - they now download 12 to 16 pages a minute and they ignore my nofollow commands and head off down the links toward the Networks and Merchants.

    Anyone else see any actions like this or am I ...

    3 or 4 different Googlebots
    How are you seeing them as different bots? Are they different IPs? I checked a site and it has 3924 hits from /bot.html and they are all from the same IP.

    Another site with similar traffic has 5 Google IPs. Can you explain a little more what you see?

    During the five minutes from 8:00 to 8:05 the following Googlebot IPs accessed my sites 68 times and passed through my links (that have ref="nofollow") on toward the Networks (CJ/LS/SAS): 66.249.71.25 66.249.71.151 66.249.71.201

    During the same period the following Google IPs accessed my sites 197 times but did not continue down my links toward the networks:
    66.249.71.213 66.249.71.78 66.249.71.133

    All of my links have the same basic html (all generated by one very busy index.php program) - they all contain <a rel="nofollow href=...

    The networks seem to head them off because I don't see them impacting my network traffic

    <a rel="nofollow href=
    should be <a rel="nofollow" href=

    micheck, I checked 3 of my sites and have no visits this month from these IPs that you give. Are you in the USA?
