Web Crawler, Web Spiders and Web Bots

A Web crawler is a computer program that browses the World Wide Web in a methodical, automated manner or in an orderly fashion. Other terms for Web crawlers are ants, automatic indexers, bots,or Web spiders, Web robots, or—especially in the FOAF community—Web scutters.

This process is called Web crawling or spidering. Many sites, in particular search engines, use spidering as a means of providing up-to-date data. Web crawlers are mainly used to create a copy of all the visited pages for later processing by a search engine that will index the downloaded pages to provide fast searches. Crawlers can also be used for automating maintenance tasks on a Web site, such as checking links or validating HTML code. Also, crawlers can be used to gather specific types of information from Web pages, such as harvesting e-mail addresses (usually for spam).

A Web crawler is one type of bot, or software agent. In general, it starts with a list of URLs to visit, called the seeds. As the crawler visits these URLs, it identifies all the hyperlinks in the page and adds them to the list of URLs to visit, called the crawl frontier. URLs from the frontier are recursively visited according to a set of policies.

Do It Yourself SEO

Do It Yourself SEO

Is ‘Do It Yourself SEO’ possible? Absolutely, with time and effort

Webpages are indexed and ranked by search engines, according to their content and use of keywords. These search engine spiders, as they are known, are constantly crawling the web to gather this information. Therefore, these are two areas that require a great deal of consideration for those choosing ‘Do It Yourself SEO’. The content of the site must be accurate and relevant. Keywords should appear in the title and, naturally, throughout the page. Avoid excessive keyword repitition, also known as ‘keyword stuffing’. Not only can search engines detect the ‘black hat’ tactic, but the page will not be reader friendly.

An entertaining and well written page, with proper keyword concentration, is ready for submission to the major search engines. Typically, major search engines, such as Google and Yahoo, will automatically submit to their network of smaller search engines. The submission process is relatively easy, but can be time consuming.

The next step is to develop a marketing strategy. It can be extremely beneficial to exchange links with sites that offer similar, relative or related content. The end result enhances the ranking of both sites. Individual sites may be sought out for that purpose. In addition, link exchanges, social networking sites and blogs may also be used.

Ingenuity, creativity, and patience will yield measurable results for those who choose the ‘Do It Yourself SEO’ option. Check rankings regularly, make adjustments where neccesary and maintain a positive attitude.
