Difference between Bots/Guests?


Well-known member
(I know i saw this somewhere on the forum but can't remember to save my life)

What is the difference between guests and robots? I was trying to explain this to someone earlier(Idk why they actually thought it was a robot lol smh) and I wanted to make sure i was explaining it right.

Guests are actual people that may be browsing the forum at the time and Robots are search engine bots? Or am I missing something?

Yes, you are correct. Bots are anything that the software determines to be non-human (Google, bing, etc.) while guests are what are expected to be humans viewing your forums.
