A list of user agents for SEO bots can be found in various places on the internet, including websites that maintain databases of user agents, such as "user-agents.org" and "uaparser.org". Additionally, you can find lists of user agents specific to certain search engine bots, such as Googlebot, by searching for "Googlebot user agent" on a search engine like Google. Keep in mind that the list may change over time as search engines update their bots and use new user agents.

Another way to obtain a list of user agents for SEO bots is by using tools or plugins specifically designed for SEO purposes. Some popular SEO tools, like Screaming Frog and Moz, provide user agent information within their software. These tools not only provide a list of user agents but also help monitor and analyze their activities on your website.


Additionally, you can access your web server logs or analytics reports to identify user agents that have visited your website. This can give you valuable information about the search engine bots crawling your site.


Lastly, you can keep an eye on industry forums and blogs focused on SEO, as they often provide updates and discussions about the latest user agents used by SEO bots.
