    I am curious as to what usergroup Google bots use and if I can pick it? I'm interested in making so Guests can't do things like view the member list or profiles while being able to view anything else but I don't this to effect google's indexing.

    Robots aren't currently separated from other guests.

    It is intended to address this at some point.

    Bear in mind that as per Google's TOS, guests and robots should have the same access to the same content, otherwise you can fall foul of their rules on cloaking and risk being delisted.
