Click on the 'who is online' function.. Google is randomly reading profiles.

Your beliefs don't make you a better person,
Your behaviour does.

All forums that I know of have "Googlebot" as a visitor. It helps made a website noticeable on every search engine.

type chrome://voicesearch on your chrome. Google now hears your verbal communication without your permission.

When you see the name of a search engine as a forum guest, it means that a crawler is indexing forum pages to appear in search results. Although profile pages are blocked from appearing in search results, I still strongly recommend you never post any personal information on your profile page (or on any other web page for that matter).

The fact that you are not aware of something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
