      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Lots Of Unauthorized Access From Yahoo!

Recommended Posts

Anyone else spot this from Yahoo? Lots of 403's


I've been noticing this for a while now from the Yahoo Slurp robot. The actually try the directory names for data and they get a 403. Almost looks like they are searching for "hidden data" that is not pointed to by any html page. Like this: www.domainname.TLD/directory/


Then what looks like a human with a Firefox browser tried the same sort of URL for a 403.


I know some misconfigured web servers will actually give you a directory list with a URL like above.
