    I have been looking at one of my sites stats. I noticed a new bot that has been visiting one of my websites lately. The name cyberpatrolcrawler bot.

    Since it was new to me I decided to check out the site that was responsible for this bot. The site is
    Code:
    cyberpatrol.com
    . The site offer a parental control software to keep kids out of adult and harmful sites.

    Why would the bot be visiting my site on a daily basis? Especially since the site it was visiting has to do with country music and no adult content? just curious

    I have noticed this too. I am pretty sure that it is doing this because it is for a company that sells a browser for kids (I forget the name) and they are crawling sites to mark them as inappropriate or not.
