Invasion of the Google-bots
OK, what are you, and who are you doing here? I mean, who are you, and what are you doing here? According to my statistics, this site gets thousands of “visits” a week. I see very few comments, no “likes”, yet every week, I get more and more “visits”. If you don’t “like” what you read here, why do you keep coming back?
If you are a real person, I ‘m really glad you are here. Please don’t misunderstand me. I want real people to read my work, but I find it hard to believe that thousands of people read “On the Money, Work” every week, but no one leaves a comment.
That seems strange to me. I’d comment. I’d say something like “Right ON, work SUCKS!!!” and I’d click the ‘like” button. But, I wrote the piece. If I didn’t like it I’d still comment, I’d say “Fuck you!! get a job, you lazy hippie!!!!”. Either way, I’d say something with a liberal sprinkling of exclamation points. If I just thought the piece was stupid, I probably wouldn’t say anything, but then I wouldn’t come back to the site. So, what gives?
The Professor suggested that Google-bots may be sucking up my bandwidth. Google-bots! What kind of web-vermin are they?. What are they doing here? How can I get rid of them? Doesn’t AVG protect me from them, or do I have to call an exterminator?
I don’t want to kill you, or drive you away from this blog, provided you are a real person. And I don’t mind a bot or two, cruising through now and again, but they shouldn’t be swarming all over my blog. If they bother you while you are here, please let me know.
Why is Google sending swarms of Google-bots to my blog? What’s with their moto, anyway: “Don’t be evil”? Greedy, sure, ruthless, absolutely, invasive and prying, fine, but not evil. Well roaches aren’t evil either, but I don’t want them crawling all over my blog!
No, I want you to enjoy a clean, polished blog without any verminous Google-bots. So, I did some research into these matters and learned a few things about Google-bots and other browser parasites. I discovered the following site:
I ask anyone who was directed to this site, from a Google search, to click this link. It will take you to the Browser Delouser, which removes Google-bots and stops their proliferation. I encourage you to bookmark this page, and visit it after every Google search.
The Browser Delouser removes Google-bots, Windows-worms, Apple-borers and Linux-lice. These vermin, rather than invade your computer, mostly stick to the leading edge of your browser, sucking up bandwidth, by sending data streams of your web-browsing habits, ogling the porn you download, and sending text messages to their friends.
While they are not computer viruses themselves, they often carry viruses and other computer infections. So, it pays to limit your exposure to them. I run a nice clean blog here, let’s keep it that way.
