What are the Bots on here doing?

Post by steve Davidson » Thu Jun 15, 2017 7:40 am

I have noticed that there are usually two Bots on here almost always, like a Bing Bot and a Google Bot and sometimes others. I am unfamiliar with Bots and what they are and what they are doing, but my curiosity is growing. Anybody have any clue what they are doing and why they are on here as registered members?

"Googlebot is Google's web crawling bot (sometimes also called a "spider"). Crawling is the process by which Googlebot discovers new and updated pages to be added to the Google index. They use a huge set of computers to fetch (or "crawl") billions of pages on the web."

Bing bot is the same, except for Bing search engine.

After scanning this forum some bots have apparently been questioning their 'little bot' story.

I wonder if they come here to work out their own little pain botties?
