Who is Online

Post by zhivago » Sat Dec 12, 2009 19:58

Am new to this forum , I normally check out the list of no. of people online in each and every Forum , but in here found something that I have never seen anywhere else from warez sites to discussion forums , Can someone there explain what that is ,

Code: Select all

Users browsing this forum: Google Adsense [Bot], zhivago and 0 guests
Couple of times I have seen something like MSN (Bot) too.

I initially thought that Google Adsense is name of a user but I was unable to click on as it was not a hyperlink , then found out it to be a (Bot) , is it really a Bot and if so how is it picked up and shown in the Users list.

Thanks in advance for replies.

The forum administrator has allowed the main search engine bots to index these forums, that's all. It just means that posts in the SL forums are more likely to be found near the top of the list returned if you use Google/Yahoo Search/Bing to search for something SL-related. And it's very effective.
