Guests and User(s)..........
« on: Tuesday June 12, 2012, 03:31:35 AM »
Hi folks, just replied to a post, and looked up to see I am the only "user", but they are 197 guests?? Huh, what are they doing I wonder? Lurking, trolling, reading, but not joining?

I've seen it before and wondered, but tonight just seems a bit bizarre to me. :crazy:

Hi Jane,

A few of them will be human, such as people browsing, or just members who aren't logged in, but most will be search engine robots trawling each page and indexing the results.
