    Sorry I am fairly new to using WordPress but I am seeing some weird things. My site shouldn't have gotten any visitors besides one or two from Pinterest but I see people accesing parts of my website I had no idea existed. For example, they accessed http://www.mysite.com/feed or /robot.txt or

    the /feed comes up with an XML file of my site:

    "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below."

    also the /robot.txt comes up with

    "User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/Disallow: /wp-includes/"Sorry I don't understand what these mean. Can someone be kind enough to explain these.

    Sounds like google/search engine bots buddy wouldn't worry

    user-agent: * - just means everyone
    Disallow: /wp-admin/ - specifies that no robots should visit

    http://www.robotstxt.org/orig.html will give you more info

    yeah that part seems fine but the part about the feed. it's from a windows vista running ie 7 so that possibly can't be a robot? correct me if i'm wrong
