What Are Search Engine Spiders?

Search engine spiders are software programs that sift through content on web pages and build lists of words that appear on those pages. This process is called web crawling. The program visits page after page, following each link and recording the content of each page as it goes along like a spider crawling through the pages. This content is then added to the search engine's index.

Search engines gather data about a website by ‘sending' the spider or bots to ‘read' the site and copy its content. This content is stored in the search engine's database. As they copy and absorb content from one document, they create record links and send other bots to make copies of content on those linked documents this process goes on and on.

A program that automatically fetches Web pages. Spiders are used to feed pages to search engines. It's called a spider because it crawls over the Web. Another term for these programs is webcrawler.

Google spiders are responsible to read through webpage source and provide information to search engines. They are responsible to provide cache certificate to webpages successfully crawled.
