Guests: are they bots or people?

Post by boffer10 on August 9th 2011, 9:40 pm

Is there anyway to tell?

I see the big search bots listed when they are on my forum, but what about other harvesting type bots. Do they have to identify themselves?

Or, can I assume that all 'guests' are real people viewing our forum?

Not all 'Guests' are real people. Some are bots. Search bots you can see (Google, Yahoo, bing, etc.) If they are active for more than a few seconds, they are most likely real people, though. Smile
