Guess what...

Our benevolent overlords instituted robots.txt files in July 2007 and not everyone had gotten the word. After the Blogger robots.txt file was put in place, the traffic on my best blog went from 2000 to 3000 a day to under 100 on bad days. I would be sitting at zero, except that several lower traffic search engines ignore the Blogger robots.txt file. Along with the robots.txt file, they have made it next to impossible to contact them to ask about it or to complain. I understand that they run a free service and can make the rules. That is why I have started with TypePad, although only in a small way.
