Are all the guests real, or google spiders?
On some other forums, the list of online users often includes 'google spider'.
My understanding is that it is automated google tools scanning the forum to compile search results???
Hi, I never log out (that would be another password to remember to get back in). Does that mean it looks like I'm always on here? I'm here a fair bit but not always.
Around 60% of traffic to this site comes from search engine traffic (that's people clicking on a link from a search engine, not from the bots).
Due to the high volume of post traffic on this site, there are always a few search engine bots crawling the site, but the majority of users you see in the list are generally real people ... and a 60/40 split between guests/members seems to be fairly typical for this site.
How often does the average visitor log in, I wonder?
