Yes, its agent is Yeti/0.1; I wanted to ensure it doesn't trigger on anything with a similar name (and didn't want to have to include the version string), so I left it as Yeti/

Sorry to be thicker than usual mate (perhaps I missed a thread or two) - what's the story with the second .htaccess banned list?

Are they known spammers - or the like?

It's just a personal list that I use. Some are spam bots, e-mail bots, etc.

Some, like Yahoo! Slurp China, sogou and Yeti are for Asian search engines. I get a lot of spam posted on my forums from software developers in Japan, China, Beijing, etc. trying to get free advertisement for their products so I block anything that comes snooping round my site from these areas.

Yeh, some bad bots won't respect the robots.txt standard; so you have to tell apache where to put 'em wink

Since I implemented that list, I don't have any guests anymore but only logged in users and spiders :-(
Don't think that's completly right.

Well, if they match a useragent string, it's a bot... Standard UA's for browsers are completely different than the bot ones wink

No you've definately done something there as some of your Search Spiders are blank.

Make sure that your very last bot in the list has no line break after it. Leave the curser flashing at the end of the line.

e.g. if | is the curser do this:

WISEnut=ZyBorg|

not:

WISEnut=ZyBorg
|

New kid on the block: Pagebull Visual Search Engine.

Well, I say new, it was launched on 28th Nov 2006 but it's just started visiting my forums so it's new to me.

Spider Details: Pagebull=Pagebull

Note: On their website is says the spider is pagebullbot but that isn't recognised on the UBB.

In another topic this discussion came up for a updated spider/agent list.

Currently there is not a way for us users to update a list on this site.
And the stock code has not changed for quite some time.

But it would be a nice to have or at least the moderators have a current updated list posted.
I know it is a revolving door keeping up with them but....

Ruben, thank you for the list. I haven't paid much attention to spiders vs. anonymous viewers. I just updated mine.

BTW, I probably started with Gizmos list to begin with way back when so there probably is not a lot of difference between the two of them. After today there is no difference at all.

Do you guys add the entire list in the CP? Does this slow down the board in any way?

I think the list would need to be many hundreds of lines long to notice any lag and then it would only be on the who is online screen.
It is just a big hassle to keep it updated

For those using my spider list from the FAQ; I'm currently updating the UA names to be the domain names that the entries belong to (where available and applicable) as it'd be a lot more helpful for reporting crawling issues than having users have to scour the internet for a contact.

I'm hoping that this will be done later today, but if not it'll definitely be done by Thanksgiving day.

Is the best way forward to copy/use the entire list on one's site? Nothing wrong with having a long and full list, right?

Is the best thing to do to just cut&paste the following list into our forum setting for spiders: http://www.ubbwiki.com/article/view/3/spider-listing.html

Is it better to have a long list or a short list of the main ones? Do these search engine spiders slow things down somewhat, or is the effect negligible?

without the list of agents.
all visiting spiders will appear as a guest.
The list just identifies the ones that are visiting your site and segregates them from the guest list to the spider list.
It does not add spiders to your site.

Yes you can copy/paste.
You will probably find a majority of them never visit anyway.

It is your choice if you want a complete list or a partial list.

Will adding a long list slow things down though, kind of like adding a long censor list will?

I knew that I posted a more recent, more complete list some place before... and here it is smile
https://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/252157#Post252157 (01-31-2013)

The site that's using it has roughly 1400 visitors on it with in a two hour period all day long. No slow downs except for when someone visits the "Who's Online" page, they get a 1 second delay. But I believe that's mostly because the page being displayed is a mile long, filled with URL links pages which everyone else is browsing.

My best advice, copy/paste the list to your site. Keep it up for a few days. If you notice that your site feels laggy (which it probably will not), replace it with one of the older, less complete lists.

It's in the FAQ forum, which is the only official FAQ; Rick wanted it "semi official" so comments on some things can get in the way.
