How does Google Bot work?


Recommended Posts

Googlebot is a special software, commonly referred to as a spider, designed to crawl its way through the pages of public websites. It follows a series of links starting from one page to the next, and then processes the data it finds into a collective index.

This software allows Google to compile over 1 million GB of information in only a fraction of a second. Online search results are then pulled directly from this index. A fun and easy way to think of it is as a library with an ever-expanding inventory. Googlebot is a generic term for the tools it uses to discover web content in both desktop and mobile settings.
