    Are you familiar with Pingdom.com?
    I'm getting hits in my log files from this particular site (pingdom.com). It looks to be a site (uptime/downtime) monitoring software, but I never subcribed to it.

    Can anyone think of a reason as to why one of my sites would be receiving these types of hits? I could only think of two things, maybe it's some type of bot developed by the company, or someone is using it to watch my site (for whatever reason).

    Just curious, more than anything else.

    yes, it's called "log-file spam."

    one could actually buy software to do this with. they figure you'll be curious and look at their url.

    Ohh, never thought about that. It makes sense (and of course I fell for it!)

    Thanks Herb.
