Googlebots, googlebots... la, laa, la googlebots

sung to the tune of "Lollipop, lollipop..."

The googlebots found the new site about two weeks ago and I think they have made goobertech their permanent workplace. Everyday they visit generally between the hours of 10am and 5pm. On this schedule, it appears that they are coming to work for me everyday. FOR FREE!

I imagine a small army of fuzzy round (probably about an inch in diameter) minions with twiggy little limbs marching down the virtual path to my site, lunch boxes in hand, and settling down to quietly catalog the day's new links. And then march home again during rush hour. :)

So when you see 15 to 20 current visitors in the stats to the left, more likely than not, it's my little workforce of googlebots hard at work. Don't forget to leave them a cookie or two. I'm sure they appreciate a bit of a treat now and again for their efforts.
