    Just read the online list, and amongst the guests, were several 'Inktomi Spiders':

    Inktomi is a powerful spider whose results power a large swath of search portal results. They offer a direct feed program through a number of vendors. We use PositionTech and have found their service to be very good. For about $100 yearly, the Inktomi spider will come by and crawl about 4 pages of your site on a weekly basis. This is money well spent, if you first employ the skills of a search engine optimization company who prepares your site for visits from the spiders. In most instances, paying to have a spider visit is not worth anything if the pages are not prepared for the visit.
    I assume we're not forking out $100 yearly - and more to the point, why would we need these to increase our traffic ? This board has plenty of traffic.

    i just get a vision of those squiddy things from the matrix now....
Were you ever put in isolation at school?
