google bot

Who or what is Google (bot) who is always browsing the forum when I am? It sounds kind of science fiction-y.

The way that Google has everything when you search for it is that it "indexes" things, which means it looks all over the Interwebz and writes down everything it sees. And the way it does that is through a "bot," which is short for robot. As Wikipedia says, "Typically, bots perform tasks that are both simple and structurally repetitive, at a much higher rate than would be possible for a human alone." So when you see GoogleBot here at the board, it's just eating all the yummy content goodness we are providing.
