RE: Shannon's Journal Discussion
just to help sort out the issue, if there is a bot that is mass spamming the site, it's pretty easy to find out. i know a couple things about seo (and it looks like some of our brothers on the board also know about seo! awesome!)

Since the problem appearing has to do with "reaching maximum limit", i assume it's due to server overload. therefore, it's wise to check why the server is overloaded. is it purely from traffic? 5 minutes (or less) in google analytics and/or google webmasters tools will help identify if it really is from bot traffic or from malicious intent. rather than us assuming it's a member of this board

From what I know of SEO, search engines stopped giving as much credit to sources from forums, as it used to be a major blackhat tactic to increase a sites visibility on the search engines. Google's panda and penguin update long since made forum sources obsolete forms of SEO. And if I'm not mistaken, hummingbird update actually causes penalty if these tactics haven't been cleaned up, in an effort to de spam the Web

Plus, you would think things like "benjamin" or "yeah" or "dissonance" would cause the same type of trends in their respective journals. As those are common words, directly used in usernames on the forum.

But I must say I am mighty suspicious myself. There do exist software that send massive amount of traffic to websites. It's a form of malicious attack, along the lines of hacking but without compromising your security. It just floods the system.

I implore IML to look at Google analytics and see where the traffic is being directed from. It's pretty easy to spot something suspicious.

And dont tell me that there arent any results in keyword planer for that... do you really think that people do not seach for experience reports before they book expensive tickets? Or want to compare their own experiences to that of others and talk about it ect?

Crawling and indexing is not the same.

Quote:searchable via google but that's clearly not the case since searching the site via google returns a lot less results

There is not necessarily a correlation between sites that google knows and those it shows if you do a search query.

It's not only due to Google searches. It would appear on the first page if you remove the space, that is if you search for "DisneylandUSA" instead of "Disneyland USA". But Google will correct you for that anyway.

What bother me is, when the server gets bogged down and you go to his profile, his status will almost always say that he's reading his own thread, but the last post on there would be hours ago. He's doing this on purpose, chances are.

If there's a way to block an IP that's doing more than 5-6 refreshes a minute, that would be the solution.

I just noticed that Disney posted and I just got the maximum server load limit. Everything was going fine until he posted. So, I think this proves that Disney is the root cause of the maximum server load limit message. Now I am not trying accuse him of doing anything wrong, but facts show every time he post. The maximum server load limit message shows up, so it is not hard to draw a conclusion that he is the cause of the maximum server load limit.

Yes, I am somewhat use to it. However, it gets real annoying and ridiculous when you want to read people's journals but you can't because of this problem.

This is so annoying. I saw his thread go to the top of the forum and boom, I started getting the error message. I had to refresh several times just to reply to this.

How come the site worked fine when we were all online for days waiting for DMSI. But now it's like, nah max limit reached.

This is NOT the area to be posting about problems with the store or journal as I do not read this thread and future problems posted here will be moved.

thank you for whatever you did. the forum is going at light speed now

Well, I hadn't done anything yet, but I completed the mods a couple hours ago. If they are not working correctly, I will know soon enough.

Now, I'm thinking about the pipeline configuration problem (or bug) in DisneyLandUSA's browser. Because I once read a pipeline configuration change in browser can cause problems, so many websites block the visitor's browser that uses aggressive pipeline configuration.

Can you make sure if that is what causing problem on the server, Andrew?

RE: The Server Issues Thread
I've looked at all the details from a tech standpoint and I see multiple ways /points of failure that could cause something like this. What I'm sure about is we've worked with the person in question over support and we are completely confident that between the two there is no way this was intentionally malicious - from him.

Basically, we've asked him to bring his computer in for repairs and if that doesn't work call his internet company to come out and left a letter for him to show them that will allow them to fix it on-site.

I won't get into any more detail than I've gotten so I realize I may not have answered your question but this is the furthest I will go with tech discussion detail on the forums... you'll notice I lean towards layman's terms in all my answers. It's just due to personal and a bit of our business policy when it comes to simplicity and privacy, as I realize plenty of you could fully understand the details if I went there. So nothing personal if anyone out there wants more details from me than I give on the forum.

RE: The Server Issues Thread
Yeah, I just made a post about it. This one is totally out of my hands, host is having a large portion of their network ddos'd. When Ben told me the store was down today, all I could do was laugh after all the server nonsense I've delt with in the last few weeks.

Always frustrating when there's nothing I can do about it, but at least this one doesn't need to be fixed by me...
