Bots

without comments

According to Yahoo! blog they have their new bot (Yahoo! Slurp) version in action that will reduce the number of requests and bandwidth consuption to crawled sites.

Almost at the same time MSN renamed few its bots (they all were named the same before) to help better distinguish them apart. So from now:
The MSN Shopping bot – msnbot-products
The MSN News bot – msnbot-news
The MSN Search bot – msnbot
The MSN Image Search bot – msnbot-media

This will help you better understand what is MSN doing on your site ;)
