Do you have a robots problem?

The scale of the robots problem largely depends on the type of website as well as the type of content it offers. The following pointers are consistent with robot activity.

· Large numbers of requests from a single IP address or a range of IP addresses within the same subnet (i.e. the first three numbers of the IP address are identical).

· Large numbers of requests for database driven content compared to the rest of the website.

· Many requests made from browsers that do not support ASP Sessions.

· Lots of and increasing numbers of website visitors, but no corresponding increase in transactions (e.g. sales!).

· Large numbers of spam or automated requests being generated from online forms.
