In the last week or so I believe there have been a number of Google spiders roaming the Net and latching onto some sites, including the RavesceneBBS and another BBS which I administrate (it happened there first possibly because I was linking to it in my signature a lot and I was posting here a lot, hence multiple instances of that link) causing a sudden jump in the number of users online at any one time (our BBSes are very small in popularity, so this is noticeable).
Actually they weren't google spiders. I did a trace on a couple I caught. They originated from Bandcon, a content delivery system. It appears to generate a swarm of page reading entities whenever a web page is clicked on.
I see. Thanks for the info.
