ok guys got a question.
google search bots and MSN search bots use a whooping 7% of my bandwidth every month. WTF is that.
that costs me about $21 a year and costs me a few days at the end of the month where my site is down.
MSN bot uses 4.5%
Googlebot uses 2.5%
i am curious whether i should block them both
block just googlebot
block just MSN bot
don’t block them at all, its worth it coz you get referals.
i am really tempted to block MSN search, microsoft are just unreasonably costing me money and don’t ever in any walk of life show consideration for anyone but themselves, if Google can do it in 2.5% then why can’t MSN. even 2.5% is heaps.
i have e-mailed both companys with my findings and requested microsft to sort it out or be blocked LOL. google i asked more nicely LOL
