Most of these are search engine bots ranking the pages. One is Chinese. You can block them with your server by prohibiting their ip. The draw back is you will lose your ranking in search engines.

Web crawlers some of them are, at least I think so. I would think that these things would flash a page and move on quickly but they seem to hover quite extensively before they move on. Makes me think that there is a human reading and indexing what the bot is viewing.
