my web pages, bots should not crawl "actions" (URLS containing the ##action## parameter) -- and yet 9% of them do it, and superfeedr does it most of all. I should investigate, I guess.

Back in 2009 I wondered about network traffic. Decided to take another look. Yesterday’s log file via bot-analyze:

aschroeder@thinkmo:~\$ bot-analyze < logs/access.log.1 | head
----------------------------Bandwidth-------Hits-------Actions
Everybody      2177M     113317
All Bots       274M      16154   100%     9%
--------------------------------------------------------------
yandex.com     63545K       3954    24%     9%
bot     33803K       2309    14%     1%
superfeedr.com     31740K       1091     6%    63%
www.bing.com     14161K        525     3%     4%
ahrefs.com      9251K        465     2%     2%

I’m surprised – bots are responsible for 14% of all my hits. That’s better than what I saw in 2009.

The way I have set up my web pages, bots should not crawl “actions” (URLS containing the action parameter) – and yet 9% of them do it, and superfeedr does it most of all. I should investigate, I guess.
