Supported Code Changes Re-usable Code  

Microsoft's new BingBot is now in operation, along with MSNBot which will eventually be phased out.

To add BingBot to your spiders list, edit /includes/xml/spiders_vbulletin.xml as follows:

FIND at line 26:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

ADD BELOW:

Add below that:

I have seen both identifiers for BingBot on my forum. The second addition seems to have replaced the first one which I haven't see for a while now. For the time being, I've added both versions to my XML file.

Does this help the search engine in any way?

No. It just allows you to see which bots are crawling your site and how many, depending on which add-ons you use.

With no add-ons, it should show BingBot in Who's On-Line.

Thanks. I know about that list but it's overkill for me. I don't need to see every spider in the world - just the major search engine spiders, which are included with the vBulletin spiders.xml file.

The point of this mod was to update the standard file to include Bingbot which is now crawling.

Also, I just checked the latest list at Wolfshead and they don't have BingBot listed there - they have something labeled Bing but it's MSNBot. (Actually, they have a few labeled Bing but they're all actually MSNBot variations.)

The designation for the real BingBot above comes from Microsoft.

Hopefully they will shortly after you report it.
