Google making SID


Recommended Posts

I was reading through my log files and google is apparently going very good at crawling most of the pages of my site. I have "prevent spider sessions" set to true in the admin are and I have a very recent copy of spiders.txt. Does someone know what this means:


Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)" - - [12/Feb/2006:04:49:53 -0600] "GET /test-1-p-28.html HTTP/1.1" 200 26004 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)" - - [12/Feb/2006:04:50:00 -0600] "GET /index.php?osCsid=fe7185f8fcaf3965df88136c65606a21 HTTP/1.1" 200 37276 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)" - - [12/Feb/2006:04:50:13 -0600] "GET /index_more.php?osCsid=fec4ea51421734808a66097d88d6f25c HTTP/1.1" 200 37025 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)"



What's the test-1-p-28.html ?


I cant access it and have never seen it before. After that page gets accessed, google creates a session ID. Is this a coincidence? I have the ultimate SEO urls contribution installed.

If you have, or had at one time, a product called 'test' then that's what Google is looking for.


Provided that Google is listed in includes/spiders.txt then the sids you are seeing are ones that were generated before Prevent Spider Sessions was turned to 'true' in osC admin --> Configuration --> Sessions.


Provided that you are storing sessions in the database and not in a 'tmp' folder then the problem will go away in time.
