Good bots vs. Bad bots

A Web crawler, sometimes called a spider or spiderbot and often shortened to crawler, is an Internet bot that systematically browses the World Wide Web, typically for the purpose of Web indexing (as Wikipedia says)

Googlebot, YahooBot, and MSNbot and similar spiders, bots, and crawlers are the programs that harvest information for search engines.

For anyone tracking statistics on their website, Googlebot, MSNbot, and YahooBot can be welcomed guests. These three search engine bots gather (harvest) information about your page for their respective search engine. Seeing these spiders more often is also desirable because this means that you are being indexed more often and more likely to show up quickly in the search engine results page.

While having Googlebot index your site more quickly is almost always a good thing, there are times when you don't want certain pages or images indexed. Most "reputable" spiders will obey a directive given by the robots.txt file. This file is document that tells spiders what they may and may not index. You can also explicitly instruct a robot not to follow any of the links on a page by the following meta tag:META NAME="Googlebot" CONTENT="nofollow".

These are GOOD BOTS.

BAD BOTS, generally, don’t play by the rules. They have a definitive malicious pattern and are mostly unregulated. Imagine thousands of page visits originating from a single IP address within a very short span of time. This activity stresses your Web servers, and chokes the available bandwidth. This directly impacts those genuine users on your website, trying to access a product or service.

Bad bots are programmed to perform a variety of malicious jobs.

They can be sent to steal content from your website. The content can be unique to your website or business. Examples of content can be product reviews, fresh breaking news, dynamic pricing information of products listed, product catalog, user generated content on community forms, and so on.

Bots can scrape the content (not only email addresses), and publish them elsewhere. This can affect your website’s search engine rankings. There have been instances of stolen content outranking the originals on Google search pages. This directly impacts the bottom-line of the websites that have invested millions of dollars to create original content.

Stealing content is not the only malicious activity these bots are capable of. They can spam community forums with intrusive ads or messages. They can create millions of fake leads on real-estate and classifieds portals. They can create phantom carts/cart abandonment on eCommerce portals. They can malign marketing analytics by skewing real web traffic to the website, creating inefficient ROI on marketing programs.

Our past year 2018

 

 

We are humble to recognize that the last year 2018 was in fact one of the best years, considering that 2012 eLearning business opening goals have been achieved and when our company became an accredited training  organization and promoted social engagement while learning through research. Our aim to facilitate knowledge about subjects and their interaction within art, consciousnesses using learning through  automated systems as elearning, machine learning started to crystallize more during this last year. Should we say that Female Principles are fully applicable through our website or should we let our readers decide on the importance of rights that each individual has on Earth?

What we were able to accomplish was also to ensure that our website became more integrated with other knowledge based sites, such that our students will be able to reach to countries and organizations that otherwise they would not have been able to reach to. 

While our work is tedious, we aim for the most important reward when people and organizations will acknowledge that life can be sustained only through high quality standards and collaboration.

 

Wishing you a prosperous and healthy year in 2019!

 

Best regards,

BITSPEC Team

Why Linux systems are less affected by computer viruses than Microsoft Windows systems?

Historically, a lot of the problems were due to poor decisions on the part of Microsoft.

For example—you open a Word document that someone emailed you—and it would go off and execute any script that was attached to it. So just opening an email would be enough to get you infected.

Most of those things have been fixed now—so life is better.

So these days it’s more down to the mentality of the malware authors.

The Savior

b2ap3_thumbnail_Savior.jpg

Some might have already recognized that failing to complete the tasks that were given under different forms as either imaginary or written are rooted in the “cause and effects” methodology.

We use in different areas of knowledge, many tools to prove that the result of an outcome consists of inputs and internal/external processes that are then weighted and predicted but most are leading to a measurable solution. We use a group of trained data to explain what it will happen.

Nature protects those who are weak

b2ap3_thumbnail_Sun.jpg

From Darwin’s time and even before we learned that those who are strong survive while the others become the residuals, therefore, we can look at the current world through the eyes of winners and losers.

From science we know that atoms and molecules with even numbers of electrons are more chemically stable than those with odd numbers of electrons but how can we apply physics and chemistry to us, the humans?

The Titans

b2ap3_thumbnail_Watching-the-waves_20180815-193451_1.jpg

My inspiration for this article is “The Titan” movie because there is a similarity on how the order of things have been changed in the 21st century. We all know how important the environment is for everybody and everything to continue to exist, yet it appears that some top level made decisions have disturbed the environment even more.

Agents of Change

b2ap3_thumbnail_The-Lady-of-Shallott1_20180711-173743_1.jpg

 

In the current order of things, most changes happen when there is a larger population that has less freedom therefore their need for changes become unanimously accepted within the group. Yet in a world in which everyone is respected, the voice of one person becomes sufficient for implementing changes without any further debates or delays because one voice is representative and can very well underlie the concerns for healthcare and wellbeing of larger populations of humans.

Lean in Education System (K12 level)

b2ap3_thumbnail_EducatingChildren.png

As very few children have been born with abilities that are beyond the human understanding, many would follow the path that has been designed for them and attend the schools that are either private, public or home schooling within the area where they live. Each school will have the control limits pre-set by those who designed their education system to meet the set criteria that are part of the plan.

Healthcare

Healthcare

 

We have learned from the paintings and recorded historical events about the people’s living and working conditions of the past centuries. Yet, we all must agree that the current century has reached new limits that were never believed to be reached even 100 years ago. It is not only the further development of the life conditions in general, but the instruments, tools and equipment that have been developed to support such progresses.

Exhaustive Processes

b2ap3_thumbnail_Processes.jpg

We learned processes from the time when we were born as we looked at the leaves that changed their colors, snow that felt cold on our cheeks or warm and clear waters when going to the sea coast. Yet, it is when we understand the process’ in depth and become aware about this, that has the largest impact to our life.

Learning

b2ap3_thumbnail_Learning.jpg.png

While all livings learn during their life time, humans are still the most advanced from this perspective as we acquire skills and knowledge in large areas.  Therefore, we learn as a population through probability rather than statistics.

Lately, learning happens through the social interactions that are made possible using electronic devises, internet etc.

Perspective

b2ap3_thumbnail_Portrait.jpg

One would wonder why the sculpture of an alien would be in a museum in Italy when considering that God and its son Jesus are represented artistically everywhere in the architectural buildings. In a country where almost in every corner there is an open museum that takes us to past events, the industry of art was craftily approached through the years of its mastering and development. It was the feel of the hard work and perfectionism that have been enchanting visitors therefore it is the work through art that needs to continue.

Commitment to design quality environments

b2ap3_thumbnail_commitment.jpg

 

Over the years, there are several posts that I wrote with a direct reference to the environment in which we exist. As I am one of the many people who worked across diverse industries and countries, I can definitively prove that people who are committed to a cause will continue to excel. Each person who is committed to deliver quality, support the communication in an open democracy, seek the transparent measures taken with fair distribution and reward, will continue to excel such that all work is done at a maximum level of efficiency, quality, speed.

Proportions and sizes to maintain balance

b2ap3_thumbnail_The-Adoration-of-the-Magi-Filippino-Lippi.jpg

If the behavior changes depending on the learning that a person is being exposed to, then obviously, the positive thoughts would be followed almost instantaneously by positive actions. In a world that works mainly within cause and effect type scenario, the positive reactions would be evenly amplified when the environment is prone to propagate them.

Is Lean contradictory when compared to Tao Te Ching philosophy?

b2ap3_thumbnail_stillness_20170101-182759_1.jpg

The new and old ideas are mixed together to take forms and shapes although none have impacted the matter of things. We know that matter is continuous therefore it will never become something different than it has always been. 

Most companies for the last centuries have shown contradictory results as what seemed to be working in one area was catastrophic in multiple areas therefore the same idea(s) were not bringing the similar and positive outcomes.

The Giants as protectors

I have really enjoyed reading literature from an early age, but I was also lucky to study the “Odyssey and Iliad” by Homer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homer) as the masterpiece of the ancient Greek’s literature.

eLearning organizations representing the social evolution

b2ap3_thumbnail_education.jpg

Whenever we look back into the human evolution there is a trend line moving upward faster from the time when the technological advancements have matured.

As the intellectual effort became more important than the physical labor, the question is whether at this time there is a fair recognition worldwide for it, and if there is, how it is shared in the world.

Coincidences

b2ap3_thumbnail_coincidences.jpg

“In Jewish history there are no coincidences” Elie Wiesel

“The bottom line is that humans are very bad at understanding probability. Everyone finds it difficult, even I do. We just have to get better at it. We need to learn to detect when data is  manipulated. Changing axes on a chart is one way, but there are many other subtle ways to do it. ““If we understood probability perfectly, then we would be less open to manipulation” and “Coincidences never happen to me at all, because I never notice anything,” David Spiegelhalter
