Someone has been visiting my profile quite regularly: 30 times in the last 30 days! I'm starting to think that maybe this doesn't have anything to do with work and I would like to stop it. Is it possible?

Thank you very much,
Cristina

That is probably a search engine - don't worry Jan 12, 2009

It had been discussed several times in the forums.

There is also a note about it in the FAQ:

I've read about the search engine crawlwrs Jan 12, 2009

I read a few topics in this same forum after posting mine and found out about these search engine crawlers. So I'm not worried about someone viewing my profile for strange reasons any moreicon_wink.gif . But still, just out of curiosity: would it be possible to block out a particular IP address?

Thanks,
Cristina

Dear Cristina,

I can bet it's a Google indexing engine (it comes from Mountain View or SUNNYVALE, doesn't it?).
In which case you should not block it, but be thankful, as this greatly increases your
chances of being found on Translator Searchicon_smile.gif

HTH,

Uldis
