Spambots getting back to work

by Volker Weber


The red line show hits, the blue line shows the volume that actually serves up. As I am constantly optimizing the site to keep my traffic within bounds, those lines do not match. Where they differ more than usual, you can see spambots hitting the site.

Both hits and volume are lower on the weekend, since many people read instead of working, and it also declines towards Christmas. January is traditionally the strongest month — congrats to Felix for winning this month's sponsorship :-) — and I expect the red line hitting the ceiling during workdays in the next four weeks.
