Who the Hell are all these guests?
07-01-2010 8:11 AM

In case anyone has noticed, more often than not, when new threads are posted we have up to guests almost immediately reading the thread, then they all disappear within a few minutes.

This had me rather curious and I've been looking into it. Almost all of these guests I.P's track back to Microsoft, Google, AOL, or other search engines. But, they are not listed anywhere as official bots or spiders, and do not announce themselves as such.

So, IDK maybe they are experimental bots or next gen. But, they are most for sure some sort of bot, crawling and indexing, and doing what bots do.

What strikes me as a bit odd is that they are on it literally seconds after the thread posts, whether or not any bots are showing in the Who's Online.

Ahh, found the answer. It has to to with the tweets to Twitter. Twitter places "No Follow" follow tags on their site to prevent bots from following external links, but there are those that ignore the tags.

Twiceler is supposed to be quite unruly in following site guidelines and can be a real resource hog. I found reports from others claiming that Twiceler would hammer their sites with as many as 15 different bots in 30 seconds and take servers to their knees.

I checked where we rank with the Twiceler search engine, and we don't. So I blocked the little bastard and it shouldn't be around anymore.
