That bloody Robot!

It's the google web spider. What it's doing is sifting through the threads on the forum so that it can build up a search profile for the google search engine.

 

Therefore if in a couple of weeks, you opened Google and searched for "That bloody Robot!", it would return a link to this thread in it's search results.

 

By default, the software is set to show the spider being visible and I decided to leave it like that for the time being so that we knew when it had started 'looking around'.

 

I can make it invisible if its freaking people out though...

It'll calm down after a while - when Google first finds a site it goes a bit mad figuring out how busy the site is.

 

Once google figures out it's a forum it may well give it a low priority - the current algorithm doesn't rate forums very highly.

 

You can also ban the bot very easily if you want to keep things nice and cosy for local people.
