Webmaster Tools Robot should use reasonable User Agent instead of "MSIE6.0" RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The webmaster tools robot is using the user agent string "MSIE6.0".  That isn't good practise.

    Use something like "Webmaster Tools 1/0" or the like.

    Have a look at Google Sitemaps or Yahoo! Site Explorer.

  • Great, now it's "msnbot-webmaster/1.0 (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)" used.
