There was a surge in page hits at Wordblog last week. That was pleasing but on examination a considerable proportion of them are for robots.txt.
In the past neither of the stats systems (one from my hosting company and the other a blog plug-in) on the site have shown much evidence of them. But last week both showed around 950 hits and they seem to have come after upgrading WordPress software to version 2.1 on Tuesday.
Is it a coincidence or is something else going on?
