Strange Spider Behaviour


Recommended Posts

I noticed today that msnbot was pretty active on my site. The strange thing is is that they are listed in spiders.txt file yet

most, though not all, of their IP's including msnbot had sessions and were treated as regular customers. I don't know how long

this may have been going on, but this really concerns me.


I also happened to note, as a separate issue, that googlebot was doing something today which seemed to direct them to the cookie useage page, which is

hgihly strange and unusual. At around the same time I had a customer call saying they wanted to order and was getting the shopping

cart was empty page even though he tried with cookies enabled and disabled.


Has anyone encountered these situations and know what might be causing these anomalies? I've been using OSC for a number of years

now yet I cannot figure these out. Any help would be most apprecieated.. Thanks..
