"Class files"

Posted by Norma Scott [Norma@thesteelsource.com] on at 06:33 PM
I have multiple search engines indexing the class files as per the following information. This is really eating up my bandwidth allowed. I have a robots.txt file to block the classes directory, but I understand many search engines don't pay attention to it. Do you have any ideas how I can keep everything except UShop itself away from the class files? Thank you.

Are you sure it is really search engines that are requesting those "class" files?

The class files listed there are really uShop's main class files and are required by pretty much any applet. So anyone accessing any of your pages would need to have those particular class files requested once. So if you had around 9,000 visitors to your online store pages... then that's what those numbers are corresponding to.

Well, my website host said he thought it was search engines. The statistics include international.class and the beaninfo classes, which I don't use. I use the cart and input class files only.
I understood that these statistics are where people or search engines are entering our site. If it were just files being accessed, then our logo .jpg file should have more hits than any file since it's on every page.
How can I determine which Ushop class files I can safely delete? I figure that's one way around it, although I have NO class files with the word Bean in them (I heard that has to do with Java?), so I don't know where those are coming from.
