In viewing who is online

Postby tiltbillings » Thu Oct 29, 2009 8:04 am

In viewing who is online, this was displayed:
Google Adsense [Bot] Replying to message in The Dhammic free-for-all

I cannot wait to see what the Google Adsense [Bot] has to say.

It would probably be depressing Tiltbillings, he is a cousin of Marvin The Paranoid Android from The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.

Sometimes the bots do more crawling late at night (at least late for here in the states) to put less load on websites. Typically less people are on at those times, at least if the majority of your visitors are US-based.

And then there's Baidu, who is more of the quiet, artistic type:

Many people have asked about the meaning of our name. 'Baidu' was inspired by a poem written more than 800 years ago during the Song Dynasty. The poem compared the search for a retreating beauty amid chaotic glamour with the search for one's dream while confronted by life's many obstacles. '...hundreds and thousands of times, for her I searched in chaos, suddenly, I turned by chance, to where the lights were waning, and there she stood.' (Chinese: 众里寻他千百度,蓦然回首,那人却在灯火阑珊处;) Baidu, whose literal meaning is hundreds of times, represents persistent search for the ideal.

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baidu

Hmm, all three bots are still here. They must be in cahoots...

Also, the more content you add to a website the more frequent bot visits you get. More threads and more posts means more content for them to crawl. They're hungry little critters and will consume all the content you make available to them.
