What's amazon.com up to?
« on: February 11, 2010, 09:55:41 AM »
Noticed in the webstats that amazon.com lately keeps reading this site a lot. Why that? Are they competing with Google in the search engine business or are they looking for new ways of marketing their stuff?

It seems to be a bad bot. Lots of webmasters are blocking it.

Thanks, I'll watch'em for a while. We got unlimited bandwidth and still using very little. They're not causing harm. But why they're reading in this site I still don't understand.

They own waybackmachine and alexa I believe, someone who uses the site probably has alexa toolbar installed.
