Googlebot

Googlebot is Google's search software that is also known as web spider or web crawler. The Googlebot crawls the Internet and finds websites and documents that are stored in the Google Index section. Googlebot follows HREF and SRC links. Like any other web crawlers, Googlebot fetches, analyzes and files the information then sorts them into keywords. Web crawlers can also be used to check links or validate a HTML code.

When a webmaster wants to restrict some information to Googlebot, he must add the meta tag "nofollow" .
