I'm trying to figure something out and searching has only led to results of people wanting Google to hit them.
I don't have that problem, google hits me fine. Too fine in fact. It is my number one bandwidth each month, mostly hitting the viewtopic file. Just this month alone it's bots and msns have already totaled 1 gig in transfer, and my host only allows 15 gigs a month, so you can see where this is going, I'm always paying for extra bandwidth.
I don't want to turn google access off, cause I like the referring. I don't want to turn of Guest cause I like people being able to check out the forum before they decide to post.
But there has to be some sort of throttle so I can control their leeching, isn't there? Is it like a no follow or return in X amount of days type thing?
Thanks, and sorry if I missed the post, but I did search man.
