In reference to: http://www.meetscoresonline.com (primarily the page /results.aspx)

I am tracking hits to my site. I'm concerned because some of the hits are excessive. The side effect is of course my bandwidth costs are THROUGH THE ROOF!

Interestingly, the 2nd largest count in the list (still 5 times less the number 1 offender) is Google.
Guy's what should I do? I don't want to block a site that is crawling my pages for good reasons, but then again, I can't afford the excessive bandwidth charges!

Here is the hits by IP (top 10 offenders):

Here is the location for each from IP2Location.com.

Well, pursuing the topic myself a bit further, I find this discussion:
http://www.webmaster-talk.com/the-other-search-engines/53089-what-spider-is-this.html

Very interesting. I'm now considering a ban on China domain IP addresses.

Karl..
