i was just looking at all the users that were logged in one day because they are all listed at the bottom of the forum homepage. when i noticed in the mix that there weren't users. in black text there were names like: facebook, google, MSN/Bing, yahoo. and i couldn't click them or anything. sometimes they are there and sometimes they aren't. i was just wondering what those mean exactly.

Those are bots.

So it's like google sending out its bots to search sites do when people search it gives them more/better results?

Google bot is logging the thread and profile info. Same as bing, yahoo, etc. It's used for their searches.
