    Question Anyone else is getting crawled by:
    Anyone else is getting crawled by: www. openisearch .com?

    For the last few days I have noticed that website crawling my sites everyday.

    I went to that site the other day, and I didn't see anything to worry about, so I haven't blocked their IP yet.

    Anyone knows anything about www. openisearch .com?

    Interesting - 1. why would a search engine hide itself behind domains by proxy? 2. why would it only buy its domain for one year? Things that make you go hmmmm...

    Thanks for that link Trust.


    ----------

    The other day I found this utility: IPNetInfo and now I can find any IP Address Information in just a click away.


    I had a bad feeling about that site.

    I'm still waiting to see a bot that comes out of the Planet's Data center that is anything more than a scraper. You gota love thier one liner "more results than all the other search engines combined"....where do I invest?
