    Is anyone else getting nailed by Ink lateley? Their bot is going crazy and taking up multiple daily MB's in my accesslogs. I don't want to be a fool and block them but this is getting out of hand.

    "Slurp" Haven't added it up lately, I'll bet it's more than one would think. Worth bloking? Probably not.

    I am seeing that same thing. Where are these pages going? I do not see them at MSN.

    Far as I'm concerned, keep sucking that bandwidth. I get as much traffic from MSN now as I do Yahoo. Took forever to get into their index (like 7 months), but you can get a lot of traffic from Slurp once in the index.

    Yes,

    The same thing here. Looks like Slurp slurped up most of my site yesterday in one 45-minute feeding frenzy.

    That's a good little Slurp

    Slurp can slurp my bandwidth as well. Not all the pages it looks at get in, but some of the ones that do bring a lot of traffic! Plus, their algo isn't the same as Google's, so if G doesn't like a page there's still a chance of it ranking well at MSN and the other Ink partners.

    I've been waiting to tell my MSN story.

    I had a site that was generating $ 300.+ commish/mo. as a result of kindly MSN. Then without rhyme or reason (that I know of), all of the pages vanished from MSN - Poof. Just like that my site disappeared including the index page, the domain itself was gone.

    I even wrote to MSN. They responded, but were too stupid to figure out what I was asking. They were polite though.

    Anyway, MSN works for my other sites, and if someone wants to spider my site in order to send visitors to me - then have at it. Sorry, just had to share.
