GoogleBot Runs AJAX?
By Pete Freitag
I saw this curious line in my log files today:
220.127.116.11 - - [06/Dec/2006:17:00:50 +0000] "POST /suggest.cfm HTTP/1.1" 200 232 "-" "Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.googlebot.com/bot.html)"
That's GoogleBot doing a
POST operation to
suggest.cfm, which is what happens when you type in the text box on cssdocs.org, it sends a HTTP post request to suggest.cfm using AJAX / XmlHttpRequest
Update: It turns out that this was someone spoofing their user agent.
