msnbot out of control on wordpress RSS /feed URLs RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're seeing a very very large number of requests from msnbot for wordpress /feed pages (rss).  Over the past day, one of our servers has seen ~100k total msnbot requests, with 91k of those being for /feed URLs.  Mostly/all from IP   For now, we're blocking this IP, but would like to seek another solution.

  • Hi Brian,

    could you send a screen cap of some of your log entries with the same subject line as above to lswmc@microsoft.com?
