The Web Robots Pages can teach you more about web robots - the Good Ones. "Bad" Robots ignore the Robots Page on your site ... or else they go straight to the folders that it SAYS they are not allowed in.


The Web Robots Pages

 Web Robots (also known as Web Wanderers, Crawlers, or Spiders), are programs that traverse the Web automatically. Search engines such as Google use them to index the web content, spammers use them to scan for email addresses, and they have many other uses.

On this site you can learn more about web robots.


The Web Robot Pages is an information resource dedicated to web robots. Initially hosted at WebCrawler in 1995, it moved to this dedicated site hosted by independent in 2000. It underwent a modernisation in 2007.

At this time we do not offer advertising opportunities to new partners, nor are we interested in selling the domain.
