Post MY GOD GOOGLE BOT
This forum ALREADY has bots cruising the site?
Good LORD.
I don't know whether to be shocked by Google's low standards or flattered that we're good enough for them!

...Wow...
'twas but for a moment
though truly
there is no other possibility.
we have been googled.


Discuss:
Invasion of privacy by people through internet
Invasion of privacy by bots through the internet
Popularity versus indiscrimination. Google bot good or irrelevant?

See. Even seemingly pointless topics can have interesting discussion points! >3

Dude, back in '05, Googlebot found my old website before anyone or anywhere had actually linked to it. Somehow.

I never did get it either.
I assume though that it's just google seeing the site... or something.

It could be to collect information. I mean, for it to be listed on the member list, it would have to be accessing the site. Right?

yes and no some times it is and other times it isnt...... but all it ever does is scan every thing completely and then puts it into google's data banks and then has it read for if sum one searches it on Google

Google bots are just programs that crawl the internet to index it. My best guess as to how you know they're on your site:

Most users ever online was 9 on Thu Oct 30, 2008 10:52 pm

Doesn't mean that there weren't actually 9 people at the site at a given time....You don't think this place will ever have that many people on at one time? :twisted:

Crap! I've been compromised!

*jumps out the window but landing safely on a convineintly placed matress*

Oh wait...

Anyway, I thought google-bots were a way to get money? I can't remember, but somewhere in the internet a website I went to allowed google-bots so they would get advertising space or something.

I heard this too. I was under the impression that google uses this to rate your site for advertising and using that rating sells advertising. Plus they use them to index:

Google doesn't do any advertising for you :P You have to pay them for that, And the way a site gets high-up on search results is how many incoming links it has from other high-traffic sites. If yahoo were to put a link to housepetscomic.com on it's homepage HPC would shoot up the list in search results.

Yeah, that's what I heard. It's like, you let Google put ads on your site and your website is advertised slightly more or something in it's own google ads. Something like that, don't quote me on that.

Suffice to say, ads work more than you might think. After all, Housepets! advertising got me here, right?

I skiped over this cause it seemed kinda stupid to freak over something so small. Besides, there are tons of search engines online and there's nothing you can do about it. Google, yahoo, ask, live, and so on.

Google does not do any advertising for you, you have to purchase Google Adwords credits. Every time someone either views or clicks on your advertisement they withdraw money from your account.

Under certain circumstances (I think things like Apache allow this) Google bots can find web pages that have no links to them, Any sort of server software that indexes pages will do this.

Google bots do not bring any income to your site directly, they do not put you on a list of/for advertisements, all they do is read the site, write down stuff about it, and occasionally take a photo of it (Cache), they do not put ads on your site, you do.

And as Rick said his advertising isn't through google.

Google bot really is insignificant.
I don't remember why I thought it was awesome.
Weird.
What's with that caps lock seriously.
Oh well.
