I want to report deadlinks on my site, my current script does work but it allows search engine bots to click the dead link report which makes it hard for me to determine which reports are form visitors and which are from bots. What am I doing wrong here? As the bots are still able to click the link and send the report to me. Any help is much appreciated Thanks. [CODE] $x=$_GET['Deadlink']; $agent=$_GET['agent']; $bots = array( 'bing' => 'http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/bing/gg132928.aspx', 'yahoo' => 'http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/slurp', 'google' => 'http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=182072', 'ask'=>'http://www.ask.com/questions-about/Webmaster-Tool', ); $agent = strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']); foreach( $bots as $name => $bot) { if(stripos($agent,$bot)!==false) { …

Hi, I'm new to DaniWeb. I have question regarding bots, specifically internet bots. How are they made and how do they perform automated tasks? Are they programs that repeatedly perform clicks at certain locations? Or are they programs that use internet functions such as cURL?

Hi guys, I'm new to this site and I have a question regarding internet bots in general. What I want to do is to use C (or php) to create a bot that will scan the internet (perhaps log into sites, retrieve data, get links, play internet games?) on the Mac Os X. Also, the concept of an internet bot is quite fuzzy to me right now. It seems there are two ways to implement a bot: through emulating mouse clicks and by using network functions such as cURL. Which is really used to make internet bots?
