    Yes, Search engine software such as Verity, Altavista etc. Identify themselves as a different browser type, this is contained in an IIS HTTP server variable (I can&#039t remember which one, sorry!). You can query this to determine if it is a search engine or a normal user. You will need to of course know the browser type that you will receive from each search engine. There is a list of these somewhere on the net.<BR><BR>I hope this helps, it should at least point you in the right direction
