What are they for??

Postby markee » Fri Feb 24, 2012 1:50 pm

Ok curiosity has gotten the better of me & i need to ask......................i keep seeing Bing Bot & Google Bot logged on here all the time but they never seem to post anything, they must be doing A LOT of research!

What's their purpose as registered users? i know they're search engines for errrrrrrr searching but how come they show as registered users?

When people type search strings in google/yahoo etc those bot's go through forums and webpages looking for answers/results to the google search.
