They are registered per default in phpBB 3 through their useragent string. This is done so it is easier to set their permissions (What forums they can see etc.)

I have no problem with the Google, Yahoo or any other search engine Bot having normal access to our site. If someone googles "SWG crafting" I would hope they find not only the website, but the Gen Crafting Forum and even Z's Famous Guide.
