Probably the most stoopid question I have ever asked:

Could a cookie on myhomepage (for tracking reasonst)
negatively affect the searchengine bot?

My opinion is a clear NO, but just want to make sure, that I am right no this one.

THanks for help.

I don't think it's a problem at all. Gazillions of websites drop a tracking cookie on first visit. Search engine spiders generally ignore cookies completely.
