TempGames.com saw a huge spike of traffic yesterday.  Unfortunately it was from all one network location “jarvis universal purchase company”.

Other people are seeing this as well, example.

Here’s the WhoIs record.

Nothing to get excited over, I would bet that this is some sort of Verizon/MCI crawler seeing as how they hit 230+ pages.

I guess we got our PS3 info up just in time.

  1. Right now i am getting lot of hits from there.

  2. yes good question – I saw the same to my Australian site on 10th July 2008 over 3 times my normal traffic about 500 unique visits from jarvis universal purchase company. not sure why they would be or what the relevance to me – just diverts my real game but interesting anyway

  3. Same here. I noticed a huge spike in traffic on my web site, all from Jarvis and all spending 1 s or less per page. Obviously some sort of crawler but for what purpose? (And, btw, I also got sent here after Googling “Jarvis Universal Purchasing Company”).

  5. We just got 800+ hits in less than an hour, seems like a bot to me, and the more hits, the more clicks… i am going to exclude them from my analytics results and do some more investigating.

  6. I received 71 hits the first day and first day and 69 the second and all during the same hour. There were 9 different IP addresses used- thru Each IP address viewed a different number of pages for various lenghts of time. Anything to worry about besides disrupting my analytics?
