What is a Google spider? Why do you think it is relevant to have information and context on your website? How do you think it will benefit your company?
Google goes and visits your website and it crawls through the pages and content, to check it all out and most importantly agree with what has been written, before opening the pages up. This is call the spider, as it crawls through the website looking for information. Think of it as looking at a book and relating the key information you have entered to find the result of what you are looking for. A Google spider is broken down into three processes in delivering what it inputted into Google searches, this is crawling, indexing and servicing results.
Googlebot is the process of ‘Crawling’. It finds the information placed on Google Index, which can be new or updated pages. Google use a large variety of sources to fetch or in simpler terms, crawl. The system that crawls through the internet is called Googlebot. This can be referred to as robot, bot or spider. Design365 likes to use Spider as it is easier to digest. Then it detects what pages and how many pages to fetch from which site, crawling by using algorithmic process. Firstly, it starts with a list of URLs’ and its past research from crawling which was generated, plus sitemap data. While Googlebot visits existing, new and updated websites to detect links the site provides, it then adds the link or links to its own list for pages crawls. Any dead links will automatically update Google Index.
Googlebot creates their own index of what they have found from crawling on each page, this may be a location as well as all the words in the content. The more Googlebot crawls the bigger the index will grow. In addition, Googlebot also detects attributes and key content tags, for example it would be ALT attributes and Title tags. Entering your query into Google search, in the back end of their system it sends lots of different messages through Google machines, where it searches the index. In return the results will show all pages Google outcome, and which is more relevant to your Google search.
Google loves content and the more content on your website, the more Google will suck everything in and store your information for future searches. This is also a benefit to your website as it will Rank well in the search pages. As Google likes to crawl, you will have to ensure your website is easy to navigate and easy to crawl.
