Bots & Page Counters...

A further comment to my previous post, The Alexa Crawl... -- bots show up in website statistical reports but do not increment page counters.

I could find no formal definition of a bot so here is my definition:
Bots <> programs specifically designed to advertise, spam, crawl, or search Internet venues, including chat rooms, IM interfaces, websites and email lists.
I tried to make the above statement a comment to the last post and was unable to [finally showed up hours later]. If you have had a problem adding your comments to this blog -- let me know <> email --> blog@qisoftware.com.
