This month, five people have arrived at this page directed by Google, after searching for ‘Jem Stansfield.’ [snigger]. Also this month, I’ve had 4706 page requests from ‘MSNBot’. That’s equivalent to crawling every single page on this site every two and a half days. And note that it’s a development project — it’s not even producing anything useful outside Seattle. It’s been doing this for more than a year.
Search optimisation from the company who — let’s not forget — were until recently making a big deal of including proper search in the next Windows filesystem. Sheesh.
