    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?

    Job 19:25


    Do you want to reach people for Christ with the Gospel message of salvation?

    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.

    Default Spiders

    This is a question about the current users on line info on the bottom of the board.

    I just copied and pasted this line, "There are currently 327 users online. 23 members and 162 guests, with 142 spiders"

    What are spiders? Thanks for any answers.

    Default What are these spiders/bots all about?

    You know, the ones listed at the bottom of the page as "online". What is their purpose?

    Search engines have bots contstantly scouring the web and cataloging stuff so it'll show up in a relevant search. An accurate search database that provides the best results can mean more advertising dollars for the search company if more people use that search engine on account of the good results.

    There are lot's of other bots... generally they mine for information. Some for example will collect anything that looks like an e-mail address and add it to a list that can then be sold.
