Googlebot is Google's web crawling bot, also known as a spider. Crawling is the process by which bots discover new and updated pages to be added to the search engine's index.

A huge set of pooters are used to fetch or "crawl" billions of web pages. Bots use an algorithmic process (computer programs) to determine which sites to crawl, how often, and how many pages to fetch from each site.

The crawl process begins with a list of webpage URLs that are generated from previous crawl processes that are augmented with sitemap data provided by webmasters. As a bot visits each of these sites it detects links on each page and adds them to its list of pages to crawl. New sites, changes to existing sites and dead linkys are noted and used to update the search engine index.

Hope this helps moomoos :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave: :wave:
