What was that!

If you are reading this, you have probably been searching for the following user agent string

Googlebot/2.1 (+http://www.templedene.co.uk/ TempleDene Link Manager)

Well it was us, or a website designed and managed by us.

Our link manager module scans sites when we, or a client, decide we want to add a website to the links page.

It scans the site to grab the title tag, description tag and any images that would be suitable as an icon to go against you sites listing in the links page. This is not an automated bot, it means someone has decided they want to link to you specifically.

Unfortunately we found we had to pretend to be Googlebot so as not to be blocked by some web sites over keen administrators, but we do 'fess up' to being us in the send part of the string.

Hope that helps clear up exactly what visited your site and why, please don't block us as this would make linking to your site a little less user friendly.
