A significant amount of the traffic on Ecademy comes from Googlebot, Yahoo Slurp, MSNbot and Alexa Archiver. i've gone to a lot of trouble to ban and exclude pretty much all the others. But now I'm looking at traffic today and the first three are all hitting on us continually.

So then I looked at the referrers and I discover that Google is 51%, Yahoo is 3% and MSN nowhere.

I'm seriously thinking of banning everyone except Google.

It also re-inforces what I guess we all knew. Google has won for basic search. Everyone else is just throwing large amounts of money at a hopeless cause.
