What are spiders, crawlers, and bots?

Spiders, crawlers, and bots are various programs created by search engines that are designed to scan the pages of your website for information that helps the search engine decide where to place your website in Internet users’ search results. They “crawl” through the pages looking for keywords, links, tags, and other information that helps them determine the importance, relevance, and authority of your website.

Since these programs determine where your web pages show up in search engine results, it is important to have a website that is free of broken links, bad code, and other errors. When spiders and crawlers see these errors they do not re-scan your website as frequently as they would if this information was accurate and correct.
