SEWATCH: The Big List of Web Robots
Oct 24, 2001, 16 :41 UTC (0 Talkback[s]) (3528 reads) (Other stories by Chris Sherman)

Who sent that web robot, and what is it doing crawling around on your server? Identify and track robots with this list of hundreds of active crawlers, link checkers and other cybercritters.

They can also automatically and rapidly fetch material that a site owner may not want anyone to see. For this reason, most crawlers (also called "robots") abide by the "robots exclusion protocol," an informal set of rules that constrains their behavior."
