Project 10 is expected to be the last formal project of varocarbas.com. I will continue using this site as my main self-promotional R&D-focused online resource, but by relying on other more adequate formats like domain ranking.
Note that the last versions of all the successfully completed projects (5 to 10) will always be available.

Ranking bot type 2

These bots are part of the domain ranking. They perform simplistic backlink-counting actions and only store the following information:
  • Domain name.
  • Contents of the robots.txt file in the root directory of each domain.
  • Number of links pointing to each domain from random others.
  • Global assessment of the site/page on account of the aforementioned information and further issues analysed on-the-go.
All of them have also the following features in common:
  • Their user agent is: RankingBot2 -- https://varocarbas.com/bot_ranking2/ (they self-identify as RankingBot2).
  • All of them are running from the IP address
    NOTE: this is the IP address currently associated with my office's network, dynamically assigned by my internet provider (Telefónica de España).
  • They only visit URLs which aren't forbidden in the corresponding robots.txt file, by exclusively considering entries expressly referring to them (RankingBot2) or to any bot (*).
  • As usual, I am the sole author of these bots and developed them completely from scratch (PHP + MySQL/MariaDB).
