Wot's 'Google (Bot)' ?

Post by Glenny Palmer » Sat Jan 04, 2014 8:36 am

.
Being a certified A Class techno dill I may be fussing over nothing...but I notice that where the Forum page says ''who's on line'' it shows the usual names, but there's also a shaded text 'Google (Bot)' there as well. Could this be ASIO? or the Taliban? (Smack smack! Glenny...this could be serious.)

It's the green and gold drippings from your nose in the grip of a cold or flu.

Seriously, it's an automated search robot (bot) indexing stuff for the Google search engine.
I'm sure that ASIO and others use Google to search for stuff too. ... :D

Goodo, ta Manfred. I figure it's best to remain diligent (or paranoid, if you like.) :D

I think it tracks your sites that you visit Glenny and builds a profile of you for future use, The first one picks you up when you visit a porn site ???? So I'm told :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Goodo Bob. Well that's the end of porn sites for me.... :? :roll:

But this was on the ABPA site with the names of those who were on site at the time...???

Anyway, Grand Master Mannie seems ok with it so I shall chill. (pardon the pun in this weather!)
