google?

I know I'm super curious but I'm just wondering :P It might be a bit stupid though. Don't know.

I noticed it so many times and always wondered what it is. I mean, okay, it says google.com, but you can't click it, or anything. Why is it there?

it's just that google is search our forums everytime new stuff is posted so it can show us on their search when people search any kind of keyword which is on here. like "IB" "help me I'm blinded up IB work!", "how do I write? IB has blanked out my memory!"

and other such sentences :P

Ah, okay, that explains things :punish:

It's still annoying though when you see a name that you can't click. Reminds me of bots *shudders*

Please don't!

I think its kind of cool/creepy!

Does this mean that if i search for this sentence in google, it will come up as a hit?

But remember that it may take a day or two for it to read this topic and index that sentence. Also, when you search for it in google, make sure you use quotation marks so it searches for the exact wording :punish: .

Will do and can't wait to try it out!

So how come its only googles name that comes up? Not other search engines like yahoo or msn etc, do they search through google or something?

I've seen some other bots other than Google lurking around but not often. Google loves us, it just doesn't bugger off. It's there everytime I log on. Which is good. :punish:

I hid the yahoo bot because it works in a different way. It sends hundreds of bots at once, so the site has about 200 guests.
