It never fails to amaze me observing how the Web grows.

IlseBot is a crawler belonging to what I think is a Dutch Web portal called The crawler came to my blog, I believe because the particular post it crawled was linked to by a Dutch blogger. Ilsebot was very polite and only crawled the linked post.

    Isn’t it better if the bot crawls the whole blog, so that you get as much exposure as possible? I don’t know how all these things work, but that’s my impression.

    Given your comment, though, I’m thinking that I’m wrong.

    Yes, Ilse is harmless. Came around in existence around 2000, IIRC.

    Nathan, well, this bot is for a Dutch language portal, so I wouldn’t expect it to crawl the rest of my site unless provides some sort of language translation service.

    And to Mr. Me yeah, I didn’t think it was a bad bot at all, in fact it was quite polite, as far as bots go.
