Google/Yahoo Bots

Post by TP 3000 »

After having catching out a recent dwebb member (attempting to sell items here in each section). I noticed that at the bottom of the page under "Registered Users" it has Google [BOT] MSN [BOT] & Yahoo [BOT] & I was wondering what these are?
Payback is a bitch, but is fun to watch.

I've noticed that these bots will follow you around the board, having a look at whatever you have just looked at. I noticed this while being the only member online late one night. :?

Interesting.....

I'll get in trouble of people from another board if I suggest what it is.

The bots automatically follow all links quite quickly so it will just be co-incidence that they are looking at the forums you are.

TP3000, if you have any information you think relevant feel free to PM/email me.
