Spiders are normally web crawlers, like Google. They crawl websites daily looking for new information so when you do a Google search like Best Places in PA to Hunt Deer or Best Load for X Muzzleloader the HPA site comes up in the search results. Which helps the advertisers get more views and keeps this great site free to us users.

Thanks Mossberg, you nailed that one!

Invisible are registered members who chose to stay "invisible" to keep things like nosy employers or spouses from seeing how much time you spend here

Thank you and you're welcome. I do websites for a living and when I do my reporting I have to include the crawlers for one of my clients or they think their site isn't being searched.
