Function Description

Returns an array of string variables that include websites or names associated by the Nematrian website with search engine spiders (or ‘bots’ as they are colloquially called) or the equivalent. This list is unlikely to be exhaustive as new search engines come into existence and others change their names. The main purpose of this function is to help website creators identify ‘real’ traffic as opposed to traffic that might arise purely from the activities of such ‘bots’.


To test whether a string contains any of these names or website strings then use MnSearchForSearchSpiders.
