Google[Bot]???
I just saw that "Google[Bot]" is logged in to this website right now... is that something that I wasn't aware of, or is there something creepy going on? Sorry if I sound like a conspiracy theorist but that freaked me out....

Anyone know what's going on?

Re: Google[Bot]???
It's a bot, just as it says. It's not a real member, it's just Google checking out our site. There's also a Yahoo bot. PHBB software gives these crawlers names so we know when they're about.

Wikipedia entry on them:

There's also an MSNbot, so it's something all major search-engines do. ^^

Thanks to Elinox for the banner!

And they've been on the site before, this wasn't something that just recently happened. I see them on occasion and don't give them much thought.

As far as conspiracies go, don't get too worked up. I work for the state of PA, in the state capitol in fact, and they're so slow with getting things done that you have nothing to worry about in the ways of mass control...ever!

Re: Google[Bot]???
Lol ^_^ Well, its not that I was getting too worked up, but with all the talk lately of them legally tapping our phones and watching us on the web and stuff I was like erk? So basically they go to every site anyway to make searching faster, and easier, right?

The reason I reacted that way was because I havent seen it til now XD thanks though for clarifying lol.

That's my understanding of it.

Every site they can get to, at least. I still can't search my way into Invisionfree sites.

Re: Google[Bot]???
I don’t blame you for acting that way since I can relate with my first reaction to noticing one on a forum I frequented. I immediately made a post announcing my find and demanding it be removed or someone explain what the heck it was doing there in the first place.

Re: Google[Bot]???
Lol it's that lovely feeling of being stalked by teh interwebs. hehehe. I was like whoa... is the gov't watching us through google? Because of all the stuff I've been hearing lately about for example, youtube has to tell viacom who watches what the most now. So it's like oh great... Someone's going to knock on my door and be like "You're an otherkin???" and cart me away or somethin' XD
