    Sometimes you just have to post. I used to create threads of interest with the hope of opening a discussion, and it generally worked. When Google spider bots crawl websites they're always looking for new content inside a site. When that content is recent it gets posted. Then people who are searching for something similar come across it and that pulls them to the forum. Right now there are over 450 guests which are probably search engine crawlers.

    Very interesting. I never heard of crawlers. Now that I've looked up what they do, there must be a huge number of servers to store all the information they collect.

    Most of them are Google bots but they are also from Yahoo/Bing, Duckduckgo, and any number of foreign search engines. Sometimes their traffic can overwhelm smaller sites so you try to dissuade them from checking certain pointless areas of your site, or to block them altogether if there's no benefit by creating a text file, renaming it robots.txt, and then writing orders in the file for their behaviors. Once you're done you upload it to the sites root directory. If you're lazy like me you can go online and find a list for bot behavior and copy it to a file.

    For Example you can allow or disallow.


    User-agent: Googlebot


    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    User-agent: Googlebot
    Disallow:

    I remember the spider bots from my days back when running juliaskitchen.. you always had to have a post of every single word you could imagine somewhere public and keep bouncing the damn thread if you wanted them to put you anywhere above page 30 in any search results.. lol
