Referer Checking Now Ignoring Bots!

I’ve added code to the referer checking to check for a few common bots:

  • “http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/slurp”
  • “http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html”
  • “http://www.blogdigger.com/”
  • “http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm”
  • “Feedster, LLC.”
  • “http://www.breakingblogs.com/timbo_bot.html”
  • “fastbuzz.com”
  • “http://www.pubsub.com/”
  • “http://www.bloglines.com”
  • “http://www.drupal.org/”
  • “Ask Jeeves/Teoma”
  • “ia_archiver”
  • “http://minutillo.com/steve/feedonfeeds/”

There are others but these showed up in the access logs of the last few minutes!
Sorry guys, your referer lists will be a lot shorter now!
