Solved Spiders and Bots

Post by BravoSix July 3rd 2020, 9:30 pm

I have a few questions regarding spiders and bots. From what I understand, bots are useful in indexing pages for search engines. Is there a downside to bots?

What exactly is a spider? And what does it do? And how does the forum's "Anti Spider" mode factor into the spider equation?

I'm trying to understand why there's so many repeat guests who's host info is spider or bot related.

-Todd

An Internet spider is a program designed to "crawl" over the World Wide Web, the portion of the Internet most familiar to general users, and retrieve locations of Web pages. It is sometimes referred to as a webcrawler. Many search engines use webcrawlers to obtain links, which are filed away in an index. When a user asks for information on a particular subject, the search engine pulls up pages retrieved by the Internet spider. Without spiders, the vast richness of the Web would be all but inaccessible to most users, rather as the Library of Congress would be if the books were not organized.

So that begs the question...... what does the Anti Spider mode do? Just keep private info like emails from being "spidered"?

Thanks APE. Clear as mud.

Anti-spider mode prevents use of website mirroring software and makes it harder to squat your computer hardware by mygales and spiders
