What is "Majestic-12 [bot]"?

Postby michaels » Wed Nov 09, 2011 1:31 pm

Whatever Majestic-12 [bot] is, it's online with me right now along with the Google bot.

In general I find that bots are online at the same time as me a lot more often than regular members are, and it's getting difficult not to be paranoid.

Majestic-12 and Google bot are both search engine indexing bots. They scour the internet looking at web pages to update their search indexes. Nothing to be paranoid about at all.

Okay, thanks for the reassurance, although I'd love to know what search engine Majestic-12 "works" for.
