What is Google [Bot]?

Post by Bobrobot1 » 14 Dec 2017, 23:31

On the index, I see the online users list, and I don't know what the purple ones are.
Here is a copy and paste:

Registered users: Baidu [Spider], Bing [Bot], Bobrobot1, Google Feedfetcher, Google [Bot], Majestic-12 [Bot], Yahoo [Bot]

I can't click them like I can for users that aren't... bots or corporations?
Could someone please explain?

Hello,

spider / bots (basically the same) are programs run by search engines like Google to index (build a summary) website. The board software shows them just for the sake of fun.

Sweet and delicious apps for your drones.

A search engine named Majestic-12?

Majestic is a type of web search engine derived from a distributed web crawler (or bot) called MJ12Bot.[4] Majestic maps the links between web pages, rather than the web content itself. This network of links is sometimes called the web graph.
This is a very powerful tool and many SEOs are using it. More on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Majestic_Search_Engine
