    The spiders are sent out by search engines such as Google and Yahoo to check the content of different sites. That way if someone googles "drilling holes for scroll sawing" it will bring up the site.


    I'll check with Rob about the tweak you suggested, Kerry, but I know he's swamped right now...it might be a while before he can implement it!

    started a topic Who's online? Mostly spiders.

    Who's online? Mostly spiders.

    Hey guys, I was always impressed by the number of guests browsing the forum until I clicked "Quick Links" and "Who's Online"...the majority of the guests are indexing spiders, mostly from Yahoo.

    I know spiders need to crawl website content to keep their indexes up to date but their has to be a way for forum software logic to exclude these "guests" from the "Who's Online" list.

    ...a simple robots.txt file with the appropriate parameters limits their presense.
