Dear site owner,
You have come to this page because you have
detected that the Referer URI in your web
server log is this page when we accessed
Our spider is indexing your page and the
links on that page, images for instance.
Each time it accesses something on your web
site, it will use this page as the Referer.
The reason for this is the following:
Unlike other search engines, we do not want
to download and steal the things you have on
your site. For instance, some search engines
download and steal your images and display
them in their search results. Additionally,
since we just try to access your images, not
downloading them, we will use practically
nil of your bandwidth.
We don't want to steal your images, we just
want to index and link to them.
Now, here's the problem: You might have set
your web server to deny access to things on
your site unless the Referer is a page on
your web site. This is why we access your
site with this page as the Referer value.
Our spider wants to know if we will be
denied linkage to the things (images) on
your site. If yes, the spider must set a low
rank value on, or remove, your image link
from the search index to avoid displaying a
broken/missing image in the search results.
