Tracking Blog Bots

Quick followup to my tags experiment. Since writing the last post, Blogging Tags and Meta Keywords, I haven't seen the Technoratibot visit the blog section of the site by looking at the web server logs. However, I have seen other blog bots visit. Here they are (IP address + User Agent):

66.249.72.200 Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)
67.43.168.194 BlogsNowBot, V 2.01 (+http://www.blogsnow.com/)
66.102.15.83 Java/1.5.0_02

This BlogsNow site looks interesting so I've added it to my Blog Resources section in the Blogger template. Looks like the Java/1.5.0_02 User Agent is the Blogger software itself hitting my blog since 66.102.15.83 resolves to ftpout.blogger.com. I'll see how long it takes for Technoratibot to visit. I have turned on the public listing feature of Blogger so I didn't anticipate needing to ping manually. I did so, anyway, just to be sure.
