Why do I have 4 Google bots on my forum

Post by FIB on July 1st 2016, 1:25 pm

Is it normal to have so many google bots at one time? I just noticed there was 4 on my forum

Hey @FIB,

Those are bots. There's nothing to worry!

You may have published something to your social media or someone else might have done that or they may just randomly appeared to your forum at once. I some days have 10-15 bots at the same time.

Hello @FIB Yes that is 100 normal Smile

when you submit your forum to bing, google, yahoo, and others they are all linked at come point and google is the better one as they look over links aswell as your main forum so to send more then one bot in to do this makes things faster for them.

only the other day i see 3 bing and 4 google on my site and the more your site is used the better as ti has to keep your forum up to date on the web search.

also if you added your forum url to say a fast search website it can post your url to google lots of times so that can be better for you in the long run Smile
