Bots, robots, what are they good for?

    Could someone explain the robots that visit sj? Do they benefit the site in any way, like increasing page views?

    From what I think I know of them, I've heard that they webcrawl to gather information for search engines. But, they can get out of hand and slow down, bog down a site too.

    Anyway, I am curious about these bots, what they do, and what they are good for.

    Jeff? Any insight?

    So, are a lot of these bots spawned by XenForo to do sj things, or are they foreign bots collecting info, vacuuming up stuff?

    They're collecting data, gathering your info, stealing the purity and essence of your natural fluids.
