Over the last three or four days I have noticed a specific IP address indexing my site quite regularly – and almost always within a few minutes of posting a blog entry. It wasn’t Google, Live, or any other known (to me) blogging search engines.
I spent some time with PHP and wrote a little script just to log when this IP address indexed my site. At the end of the few days I sent an email to the admin@ the IP address.
Turns out I dug up an “in stealth mode” startup that’s building a new blogging search engine. I’ll honor their request not to say anymore than that at this point, but I do feel very Magnum P.I. – ish right about now 🙂
