I just noticed in my logs that the GoogleBot has been using the Style Changer on this site! This is certainly not something which I was expecting to happen. Has anyone else had any experience of the GoogleBot selecting options from the forms on their sites, and then spidering the page (with GET variables) that the form would have led to?
126.96.36.199 - - [24/Feb/2005:20:28:04 +0000] "GET /style-changer.php?style=unstyled HTTP/1.0" 302 0 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.google.com/bot.html)"
So, yeah, there you go. Is this new behaviour or not?
Oh yes, and thanks to everyone who’s been clicking on the adverts on the site - your sterling efforts at looking at stuff that you may or may not find useful is well on the way to paying for workingwith.me.uk’s hosting. Don’t forget that after website operating costs have been covered, everything else that is raised by adverts will go to the charity of the hour.
If you really enjoyed what you just read, why not buy yourself something from Amazon? You get something nice for yourself, and I get a little bit of commission to pay for servers and the like. Everyone's a winner!
