Googlebot, and the like?
Posted 25 September 2006 - 11:08 AM
I was thinking of implementing something like this, but maybe to also include some other main ones for yahoo and msn. I figured that this can be determined with $_SERVER["HTTP_AGENT"], but that can also be easily spoofed.
My other thought is that maybe they have a range of IP's which could be matched against on top of $_SERVER["HTTP_AGENT"] for a better/more assumed verification of it being real.
Any suggests for creating something like this? Or anyone know a little of IP's (or just ranges) which these bots use, and what bots they're from?

Also note if you are intending on supplying different content to googlebot than you do for normal users, if found out you will receive automatic -1 google rank.
