    Yahoo user agent


    Does anyone know what the yahoo user agent is? Yahoo has not been crawling my site so I want to know what to look for when it has.

    Hello Sweat.
    > What is the official identifier in the logs - "Slurp"?
    The three that I've seen are:

    Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Yahoo! Slurp; http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/slurp)

    YahooFeedSeeker/1.0 (compatible; Mozilla 4.0; MSIE 5.5; http://my.yahoo.com/s/publishers.html)

    Yahoo-MMCrawler/3.x (mms dash mmcrawler dash support at yahoo dash inc dot com)

    (I've verified all three as Yahoo.)
