    Ratio between members and guests accessing the Lounge

    What's Going On?
    Currently Active Users
    There are currently 698 users online. 7 members and 691 guests
    Most users ever online was 2,934, 2012-05-17 at 15:47.

    Can there really be 691 guests online? Could these be just old timed-out robot searchers like GoogleBot?

    I think the bots around here should number in the hundreds, if similar experiences elsewhere are taken into account. It's probably likely that quite a few are really guests, I would think the Lounge would turn up easily in searches related to windows issues.

    Yeah I've been wondering about that myself.
    Do a search in Google on related subjects and you'll usually get a hit with a Windows Secrets link.
    Probably some combination of both, but mostly search queries from Google.

    I can't see there really being 1020 or 1500 guest all on at the same time.
    Our numbers were more accurate, if you can remember, before we had our forms linked to Google's search apparatus.

    I suspect that this is similar with the Window Seven Forums but with larger numbers.
