What's the difference between msnbot and bingbot?





Peterssidan
When I looked at the usage log of my website this morning I saw the following lines.
Quote:
65.55.213.68 - - [25/Dec/2013:02:19:04 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.1" 200 373 "-" "msnbot/2.0b (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)"
65.55.213.68 - - [25/Dec/2013:02:19:04 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 1498 "-" "msnbot/2.0b (+http://search.msn.com/msnbot.htm)"
157.55.34.24 - - [25/Dec/2013:04:51:33 -0500] "GET /robots.txt HTTP/1.1" 200 385 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; bingbot/2.0; +http://www.bing.com/bingbot.htm)"

Both bing and msn are owned by Microsoft so why would they use two different names for their bots? Is one of them fake?

Don't know why they are using two bots.
But both are not fake. Wink
