    Exclamation ?q= WHAT IS THIS?
    I have a new site. If I do a search in google using the string

    mywebsite.c0m shopping

    I get a search result of
    mywebsite.c0m?q=Shopping

    I don't have the word "shopping" on my site. This also happens for just about any other keyword I try in addition to my domain. I noticed "Gigabots" on my site logs via search phrases such as this.

    What is going on?

    I checked a cached page and see what this is now. My domain was parked with a host that had an affiliate directory. The search engine is still picking up that information.

    With that bot, robots.txt is probably faster. From what I've seen, Gigabot actually obeys it, once it reads it...

    That was my first effort. It read robots.txt and continued to suck up pages.
