No Wikitravel site (I tried en, shared and ru) available at all from the following subnetworks:
Here are some details our NOCs report on this:
I've made several traces from TeliaSonera looking glass, and almost every time it reports "host unreachable" except when tried from several hosts in US. The site is also working fine from our California office. Looks like they blocked access from anywhere except US.
At the same time the site is always available from IPs of my home ISP, like 220.127.116.11.
To update, it seems that Wikitravel has blocked entirely Yandex spiders. Yandex is a major search engine in Russia (market share 65% compared to Google's about 20%). As long as Wikitravel blocks Yandex, it is not searchable by Yandex at all. Please let me know who is the right person at Internet Brands tech team to talk to on this issue--I will connect Yandex people with him. --DenisYurkin 15:01, 6 July 2010 (EDT)
