Hello- Recently my client has been complaining that her site keeps crashing, and I've had to reset the application pool frequently. 

I am a front end developer, and so the technical back end is a mystery to me. Lately my event log viewer has been EXPLODING with these message (around 100 per day at least).

It seems like it has to do with these web bots? If it helps solve the problem- this was a redesign from an old site, and pages that it is trying to find such as /Activity-Feed/My-Profile/ArticleID/461/Stocking-Curt do not even exsist on the current site. 

Can someone please help?

I would start displaying this Website page to registered users only
if necessary, clear eventlog table by executing the following Statement in Host > SQL:
Truncate Table {databaseOnly}{objectQualifier}EventLog

yes, it seems baidu (a popular search engine) is aggressively indexing you - you can use a robots.txt file to block/limit scans on pages or for agents (see for how to block baidu). You can see an example robots.txt file at - towards the bottom you'll notice a rule that blocks access to user profiles.
