    Default What is a Spider?

    I'm a member but haven't been on here for several years except to read occasionally. What is this spider designation?

    little black things with eight legs that can crawl from computer to computer through the wires and if need be transported through the air for phones. Evil little buggers as they hide just out of sight in the corners your screen waiting and watching, watching and waiting until that special day you let down your guard and "BAM".

    With all joking aside they have a spider fact sheet in the tec zone. Now that was a joke, really they are "O" little army waiting to take over East Philli.

    I call them bots or robots. They're software code that runs around the internet gathering data. All the search sites have them, that's how info for their search results are gathered on a constant basis.

    If I don't want a site indexed by search sites, I include the following line in the header:

    <META name="ROBOTS" content="noindex,nofollow">

    I don't know if that line is respected by the bots or not.
