Google and & Google Mobile are listed as online users at the bottom of the main page - what's up with this?

There are parts of the site that are indexed by Google. That means they show up in a Google search (like the public parts. I'm not sure what else). In order for Google to have access it is listed as a user. Which is why it shows up like a user at the bottom of the page. It means that someone is viewing the site through Google. Likely as the result of a search.

Hi loveinflames,

 

These are search engines which have extremely limited access. I've noticed "Bing" and a couple of others as well. They only have access to the public sections of the board so no worries! :)

 

Take care,

Susan

Hi 8888,

 

I'm glad to hear that! We all need a safe environment in which to heal. The entire staff works very hard to make this board as safe as possible. 

 

Be well,

Susan
