SalamNews bot is an application that goes through specified sources of news and collects data for the SalamNews portal. A news portal will likely be accessed by our bot if the portal is added to our database. Something to note is the SalamNews bot is not a crawler and does not act like one.
Currently each source will be accessed roughly once every 30 minutes. In the future, some sources might be queried once every 10 minutes, thus there shouldn’t be any load on any portals.
Blocking SalamNews bot from visiting your site
If you would decide, you don’t want SalamNews bot visiting your site, you should consider the amount of queries are quite low and do not create much additional load, but provides benefits, as people hill have more visibility of your portal.
