It has been almost a month, November 21st to be exact, since WebmasterWorld Banned All Bots from crawling the site. Since then we estimated that WebmasterWorld Lost Over 40% of its Traffic after being delisted from the major search engines. It now appears that WebmasterWorld is back in the index.
According to a WebmasterWorld thread named WebmasterWorld Back In Google Index, Brett in message number six specifically thanks "GoogleGuy, YahooGuy, MSNDude, JeevesGuy, his Taco'ness, and OJR..." It seems as if some cloaked or other solution was worked out with the engines. And in my opinion, since WebmasterWorld has rockin content, they deserve special treatment. The folks over at DigitalPoint Forums are carefully watching the Alexa charts to see when WebmasterWorld passes them by, to take the lead once again.
