If your log files report that your site has been visited by Prowler 5 in the recent past, it is possible that our Shark Search Engine under the pseudonym of Prowler 5 has been at work.
Shark Search engine obeys faithfully all the standard directives from Robots.txt to meta tag instructions. Normally we do not send out Shark to prowl on its own. We specify the sites it can crawl based on certain conditions. Shark is programmed to be subtle in approach. It never fires rapid-fire requests to any one site at the same time. It makes timed requests for a minimum set of files and comes back for later for a few more files. It is in no great hurry unlike other Search engines.
If you still think that your site should not be Shark-infested, add Prowler in your robots.txt under the Disallow directive. If you require more information about this gentle creature of the Net, please contact us through the Contact page. On the other hand, if you are curious about our namesake, the following brief note may be of help.
Colophon: When the Search engine was dreamed up, it conjured up an image of a voracious animal going on a feeding frenzy. It was decided even before the project got underway that, it should be suitably christened as the 'Shark' as it prowls around the vast Internet in search of its 'prey'.
