From the Y! Search blog - Yahoo! Search Crawler, Slurp, is moving
Anyone who has seen their web server logs, has seen the Yahoo! crawler come by and leave its mark. It identifies itself as 'Yahoo! Slurp' and its domain is inktomisearch.com. For those of you who follow the search space, you can easily guess that this is one of the last historic remnants from our acquisition of Inktomi a few years ago. Well, the crawler finally decided to move and find a new home. We are moving our crawler from inktomisearch.com to crawl.yahoo.net.
