Actually, no. The load on the bot server is nothing much. I'm more concerned for the
servers that it visits. I make sure no server is visited more often than every 20 seconds,
(but I have no check for virtual hosts...), but places like codeur.org, agora-dev.org
and compkarori.com really fill up the list, so I suspect I'd bug them if I were to index
at high speed.

Yes, that might just be a good idea. If not on top of search results, they at least could
be given som extra visibility, like with the text "User recommended site" or something
similar. I already try to register which links are followed by users, but haven't yet
decided if I want to use that information for search results (could be ranked higher?).
The only use I make of it for now, is the displaying of the five last clicked links on
the rix start page: http://www.oops-as.no/rix
Thanks for ideas. They don't exactly give me more sleep, but more will be just as welcome
