As one of the measures they suggest switching from MyISAM to InnoDB.

Are there any changes in 4.7.10 as compared to 4.7.9 that would cause issues if x-cart is subjected to high bot activity?

Maybe your SEO position has been improved due to some of these changes.

It seems you are in the green zone

Could you ask your hosting for the bot's HTTP_USER_AGENT?
Maybe our XCRobots::getRobotsSignatures() method has to be corrected.
It should help to reduce the amount of MySQL queries.

Thank you.
