    Something i have noticed for quite some time with Wordpress, The site can be dead as anything but when i start purging old posts the traffic rolls in from google and bing looking for the old images 404 that where attached to the posts. It never fails.

    Anyone have any ideas?
    Yoast plugin - direct images to posts, no attachments xml (settings)
    doesnt matter if images are in year/mos or in root of uploads.

    thanx
