Default What's with all the Guests?

Been wondering this since I joined the forum. Why are there always so many guests online? Are they bots? Are they lurkers?

...Do you two plan stuff like that or is it just a spontaneous thing?

Seriously tho, I am curious as to what all those guests are doing. On the Who's Online, they usually seem to be looking at really old topics.

Those who lurk the ARG aren't bots.

It’s most likely people coming in from search engines. They’ll look up something (probably Oddworld-related) and something in an old thread will turn up in the search results.

I first found my way here by looking up information about Oddworld.

That makes sense. Same way I came here, actually. Someone posted sketch refs of various Oddworld species a while back, and I found them when I first started drawing OW.

If it's old threads, it's almost definitely search engines. That's what they do.

Well I think we have a spike in lurkers right now due to the ARG. Just look at the number of members who joined recently just to help solve the puzzles.

I used to lurk quite a lot on Halo forums when they had the "I love bees" ARG going on.

But yeah, we do have a ton of bots.

Wow that brings me back.

ARGs are pretty popular, it seems.

WTF are these people searching for?

Some snippets of what they are viewing:

SoulStorm ARG - Piece 6
SlapFight!
Awards and Ponies
What kind of geek are you?
Ed Talks Bollocks
~ Side-Effects May Include ~ - For your digestion...
Carnix made another music video!
Main: Rupture Farms: Meat Processing: Overlord:hobo
Venks - 16 year old girls.
Shitty shit
Which Halo 2 Character are you?
