We trawled through our server log files to compile a list of robots with regular frequency. We noticed them regularly in the last 3 months. This list is valid for a general content site with no particular specialization. We reproduce the bots' User Agent and their contact details as they appeared in our log. When you browse through the list, you will also find that many search engines switch User-Agent strings depending on the need.


This list contains bots which downloaded robots.txt file and obeyed the directives contained therein - thus indicating responsible expected behavior (at least when they crawled our sites at the given time). If you are looking for ways to block any of the unwelcome bots, you should check our Blog pages here.


This page was originally published in 2014. But we keep updating the list if we find any bot appearing in significant numbers. Probably most of the bots in this list are useful for the Webmaster and do not fire rapid-fire requests within a short time. Unless you specifically look for them, you may not even notice them.


Tip: You don't need to scroll through the list to find the bot you are interested in. Just start typing the Bot name in the form provided below and the list will narrow down to the bot.
