You mean bing of the search machine?

Bots, that's for advertisements orso. You probally had like 40-50 people viewing the forum? For me the bing bot comes then.

Hi.

Bing (Microsoft's search engine), alike Yahoo, and Google like to reference your forum. Bing is the search engine.
Here's some information about bots: http://help.forumotion.com/tricks-tips-f32/bots-who-and-what-they-are-t55170.htm Wink
