When I'm viewing a topic, I quite often see a 'guest' or 2 at the bottom under the Who is online.

Who are these visitors :laserswords:

They could be members who have just logged off, but not quit the index page, or visitors just viewing the index page ;)

I wondered that as well. If 'guests' can only view the couple of articles on the front page, how can they be showing as browsing the threads also?

I think if a member gets timed out and has was in a thread at the time, the system shows him as a guest on that thread.

nope, thats afair googles or other search engines crawlers that are capable of visiting boards cause that is anchored somewhere in the phpBB board software.
There must be a switch to keep em out, but that is a question for the admins!
