In case you're noticing a very high number of guests (chickens) on the front page, it appears that my plan to trick the Googlebot into crawling the board has taken effect. Since it uses multiple IPs, the board software counts each one as a guest...since it doesn't know any better.

The front page HAD been included in Google, but it appears to be gone now, although the old wienerville.slashwrestling.com page is still there. It DOES look like most of the threads have been crawled, though, so maybe in a few weeks we'll have an interesting new interface for Searching through our archives...

Is this what it's come down to, tricking a poor old googlebot into making a high chicken count?

I don't suppose it would be right for the more curious among us to ask what exactly tricking a googlebot entailed, would it?



High tide for the time being.

Chris used the mod rewrite command in apache to turn all of the ? in / in the URI for the board. Google generally will not crawl dynamically generated pages past the first page to avoid getting stuck in infinite loops.

I guess I should have asked Chris if he left the last level with ? or / before Google hit here... Oh well.


We may have a problem if they never leave.



Your analogy is similar to:

"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?"
"I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?"
"They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"

-- my new favorite quote from Slashdot comments.

So are you saying Google avoided the ?'s to avoid infinite loops, but because we took out the ?'s, they might get caught in infinite loops?

We've already got problems on here cuz some people never leave. At least the googlebots are quiet...

Well, they left, so I guess it worked out ok after all. I'm interested to know if the bots were able to navigate all of the threads, or just through the first page... but I guess we shall see.

I think they'll cheerfully navigate forever until I fix some buggy Java
I see about 24,000 hits from them in the current log...so, let's see - almost 1200 user pages, almost 9000 thread pages...many with more than one page (guests read 20 messages per page)... hmmm. Interesting!

This is a rarity in this day and age -- an ad-free, popup-free site with heavy traffic that's actively ENCOURAGING an external site to chew up its bandwidth.

Since I don't understand the technical nature of the difficulty, I say keep it simple. Bring in the Swedish Chef to eliminate the excess chickens.

Yeah but those other sites have to PAY for bandwidth rather than running on the Power of the Warrior.

I've noticed that even though signitures and avitars are available in the profile page, none of them come up in the actual posts. Am I doing something wrong?
