    What is a Google Spider?

    Hi, I was searching the "who's online", and it lists all the members' names, then it lists "guests". However, after guests and mixed in is listed "google spiders".

    Can someone tell me what in the heck a google spider is? And why they are listed as a spider and not a guest.

    That is the googlebot - it caches pages on websites so when you do a google search you get hits on that site.

    Its basically gathering info so people can find websleuths when they search keywords on google.. cool huh?
