AI chatbots are scraping our data, and sending zero visitors

    I have a question about these AI chat bots.
    I think this forum section is best suited for this because all these bots are products of these popular search engines.

    The thing is, these search engine companies are crawling our websites, taking data from us, and then feeding it to these chat bots, which are then showing the result to the user, "without" showing a link to our websites.

    How is this beneficial for us website owners?

    I am 100% certain that these popular search engine companies have not hired their own professors and scientists and whatever to come up with answer sheets to feed these bots.
    Its clearly data from our websites.
    And there is no benefit to us. None at all.

    Those "featured content section" we saw in web searchs, that is the answer these chat bots are giving out.
    Difference is, in "featured content", the user can click a link and open our website. But that is not the case when the same user is using a chat bot, and still getting same answer.

    Journalists who have used Microsoft's chatbot, they have confirmed that the answer of the chatbot was pretty much the same which they got when they were using the "chat" feature in bing search.
    Minus the link to the website.

    In short, we are making websites so that search engines can use our data, and totally prevent the user from opening our website...

    How is this good? What can we do? Any ideas?

    Give away to these bots the implicit ads,
    like the product placement in the movies.

    And take the money from the advertisers
    in exchange for such product placement.

    It is quite logical that AI chatbots collect and will collect the information we provide them.

    It is logical, but then give a link back also. We are providing content to search engines so that they can send us visitors. If they "refuse" to send visitors, then what is the point?
