EventGuruBot is like a thousand internet users busily surfing the web, but it moves from page to page indexing the content it finds. It spiders from the sole IP address: So if you see EventGuruBot hitting you from a different IP then it is probably an impostor.

You can see if we managed to find any events on your site by doing a query like site:mysite.com here:  

EventGuruBot obeys the robots.txt standard. robots.txt is a file that you place in your web server's root html directory that tells search engines what pages you do or do not want indexed. This page talks more about it.

EventGuruBot supports the Crawl-delay directive as well as the noindex, noarchive and nofollow meta tags.
