More Google vs. Yahoo

Just looking over a few stats for the month of Feburary, and this stood out:

7,025 sessions
Inktomi Search
28,769 sessions

  1. No it’s not: in January 2004 I had 46,667 visits from Googlebot and 37,016 from Yahoo/Inktomi’s Slurp. Perhaps this is just an off month for Google.

  2. Also Mike, if you had comments I would warn you that gzipping external CSS files can crash NS4, which you may want to note in your article. That’s why it’s usually excluded when people run mod_rewrite.

  3. Okay. I suck. New rules. No more posting anything at 2:14 am after too many coffees. Yes, I meant WordPress.

    Anyway, post updated. Thanks Matt, I’m going to sign off before I do myself any more damage!

  4. You must have gotten Slurp in a corner up against the ropes where she couldn’t get away: I’m at 7516 Googlebot and only 2780 Slurp. However, I did notice the other day that Slurp’s grabbing my front page every 90-180 minutes, while Googlebot will spend hours sucking down link-and-a-snark entries from two years ago that will never change again.

  5. It DOES seem to have been a slow googlebot month for me…
    (As of Feb 23 @ 5AM, I only update my stats weekly)
    MSNBot 3590
    Googlebot 3208
    Inktomi Slurp 2167
    Turn It In? 495

    Compared to last month:
    Googlebot 6515
    Jeeves 2470
    MSNBot 1766
    WISENutbot (Looksmart) 1096
    Inktomi Slurp 987

    And apparently Jeeves finds me boring this month, with a measly 148 hits… odd!
