Search Engine spiders
« on: December 07, 2008, 07:47:31 PM »
minutes ago I invoked the Search Engine utility (new feature of the software upgrade).  It sent out handshaking with 37 known internet "spiders".  3 minutes later we already had several hits from google and Yahoo.  The sole purpose for wanting this, is to connect globally to those looking for answers, pictures, etc...and to come up on search engine utilities such as google, Yahoo, MSN, Lycos, etc...  it will take a while to propogate, but at least its started.

The Website domain now has a quick redirect; when you enter the URL http:// www.170220.com, the redirect sends you immediately to the forum coverpage.  I set up a php redirect [ a permanent 303 type ] which allows search engine spiders to follow through on the redirect.

snippet from Wikipedia> Also, crawlers can be used to gather specific types of information from Web pages, such as harvesting e-mail addresses (usually for spam).

.............. the email addresses are not shown, for this very reason.

speaking of "web harvesters", that would be a good name for you Des ?   you are so prolific in adding stuff for others to see daily, you are like a single [manual] web harvester in your own right. :)
