Interesting thread on DigitalPoint where people are posting there SearchBot ROI's. This stems from my blog post on the subject:
Each time a bot spiders your page it costs you money. It may be a small amount but it does cost you money. I did some number crunching on one of my larger websites. Kind of a ROI on the bots if you will. Basically what kind of return hits am I getting for each time my page is spidered ?
People are reporting some pretty neat results.
Personally my results were as follows:
#1 GoogleBot .78 Search referals per spider.
#2 Yahoo Slurp! .14 Search referals per spider.
#3 MSN .01 Search referals per spider.
#4 Ask.com 0.00 Search referals per spider.
Will be interesting to see how many people take part in this thread over the next few days.
