Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In the web, a bot analyses a site to find a matching expression  for example a regex for an email address  and then stores these somewhere for later use. Often they move forward through links on the site to expand their area. There are too many kinds of bots to explain every single one. For detailed information please explain in what area you're interested.
