Search Bots Crawling
« on: June 23, 2007, 11:58:24 am »
I've tracked the IPs of most of the guests, and they appear to be coming from Yahoo and Google!

Our site is being indexed and crawled, gentlemen. These bots also seem to be coming around pretty often, too....

Interesting.

I for one came in through wikipedia :)

I guess many come in because they want the XP patch and that would be from google, while people who are just reminiscing about the game and trying to remember how good it was come in from wiki :P

Search "Robots", or "bots", are automated programs that trawl through webpages following links and cataloguing the page for a search engine.

I still have my original Machines disks and manual....

Was that directed at Sloik, or the stupid annoying messed up pieces of crap searchbots who crawl through the site?(or both  :wink: )
Have you checked out any of my mods?
-If not, it's probably because I haven't uploaded any. :wink:

Yah google and yahoo send bots out a lot now. Its a way to rank websites by how many people are active on the site.
