What is ZoomBot

What is ZoomBot? ZoomBot is a Web Crawler that powers the 2 billions link database for SEOZoom tool. It constantly crawls web to fill our database with new links and check the status of the previously found ones to provide the most comprehensive and up-to-the-minute data to our users. Link data collected by ZoomBot from the web is used by marketers in Italy to plan, execute, and monitor their online marketing campaigns.

What is ZoomBot doing on your website?

ZoomBot is crawling your website making notes of outbound links and adding them to our database. It will periodically re-crawl your website to check the current status of previously found links. Our crawler does not collect or store any other information about your website. It does not trigger ads on your website (if any) and won’t add numbers to your Google Analytics traffic.

It does respect Robots.txt?

Yes, We respect robots.txt, only with disallow rule.
You can block our bot using this simple rule:

User-Agent: ZoomBot
Disallow: *

Please note that ZoomBot may need some time to pick the changes in your robots.txt file. This will be made prior to each next scheduled crawl.

Please also note that if your robots.txt contains errors and ZoomBot won’t be able to recognize your commands it will continue crawling your website the way it did before.

If you think that ZoomBot is someway misbehaving on your website or if you have any questions about it, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team [email protected]
