After banning the domain amazonaws.com because they are hosting bots.
I get all of this.

so how do you ban an amazon bot from accessing your site? What is the coding for it?

tmaster said...

I added the domain name to my scripts. Or you could add all of the ips to your IP server block if you can find them all.

Ilya Grigorik said...

tmaster, we'll remove your blog from our index and the visits from our spiders will stop - that's not a problem at all.

Having said that, the reason they are coming in the first place is because someone (perhaps yourself) has subscribed to your RSS feed via our service. Hence, as long as that is ok, we can certainly remove your blog from our system.

Feel free to ping me at ilya _at_ aiderss _dot_ com.

Best,
Ilya

tmaster said...

since we use feedburner your bot has no business accessing the blog direct. Also your bot is broken since it can not understand error codes.

tmaster said...

BTW its not this blog I was talking about it is the other 100 or so blogs and websites I run.

Ilya Grigorik said...

Tmaster, we also collect additional data like comments - for our PostRank ranking. As I've mentioned before, if you want us to remove your site from our index, please ping me with the list - that is no problem.

Best,
Ilya

Ilya, you really need to honor robots.txt instead of expecting every webmaster to choose to opt out. Robots.txt *is* how we opt out.

And if you don't respect that, you get blocked - which, on sites I host, you have been.
