Was there any resolution or reason for this?
Over the last couple of weeks we have had a stupid amount of visits from this bot.
Over the last 24 hours, we have had over 1000 visits from the bot. In one instance, we had 30 hits within the space of a minute.
I have added the required rule for the robots.txt and, although we have still had hits, this has gone down to 39 in about a 14 hour period
From experience, what is the most likely cause here? The site doesn’t use any Twitter cards, and I can’t imagine people sharing 1000+ links, although I would hope if 1 page was shared 1000 times, we would only be hit once.
If you need any more information from me please feel free to ask!
