(Remember SMF detects most Google/Yahoo/MSN bots by default)

It appears that most sites offering spider/bot lists have tonnes of inactive ones. I'm putting together my own lists by detecting them in the wild on my own sites. Plus any that get reported to me (after I've checked them out).

So if there are any ACTIVE ones I'm missing? Please let me know in the support topic.

Any previous versions of the mod does NOT need to be uninstalled.
This mod adds a row for each spider in the database only. It will ignore adding ones which already exist.
No theme edits required. No language strings to translate or editing. It adds database rows only.

Install and your done.
Note: Click uninstall to remove the mod from your mod list. But it won't remove the spiders from your database. You'll need to remove each one from your SMF Search Engines/Spider section.

For manual installation, just upload AddMoreSpiders.php to your SMF directory and run it in your browser (then delete the file).
