Title: "Guest"s on forum
Post by: Raudhrskal on July 13, 2008, 10:10:07 am
Lately, each time I look at forum the statistics box tells me that we've got about 10-15 "guests" online. And details show that they're reading *everything* that's posted on forum.

Wonder if they're Google bots, or something more suspicious...

EDIT: Some of them show up as "Printing topic: <some_topic>". Random link-following bots for sure. Crat, if you could check their IPs, just to be safe...

Search bots, mostly.

Sometimes a search site fires off multiple bots for this site. I don't really
understand it, but I'm glad that they're helping people know the site is here.

It's pretty prominent on seaches for "lpmuds"
