A bot is a program that operates as an agent for a user or another program. On the Internet, the bots are the programs, also called spiders or crawlers, that access Web sites and gather their content for search engine indexes.

Search engines bots are sent to crawl and index the pages of your website. To make it easy for the search engine bot to crawl your site, you should create a sitemap and submit to the search engine. Sitemap ensures that none of your pages are left out from being indexed. Some of the major search engine bots are Googlebot, Bingbot, Yandex Bot,Soso Spider, Exabot, and Sogou Spider.

To understand Search engine bots let’s assume how Internet works. It is the spider connected with wires, one to another and that is how it reaches from one place to another. Like we had telephone lines to call from one place to another, government authorities just join the same lines to the web world called internet.

Yes, similarly search engine bots are the collection of spider that goes one site to another and since they are interlinked like the connected multiple wires. It crawls a webpage and stored the related information in database works with that software.

The use of search engines bots is to discover new site if came into existence and also to find if some changes has been done in an existing website.

A bot nothing more than computer program that visits certain links on the web and gathers information as it visit the web page.
Example:-
Bot will follow HREF tags to find pages and images that are associated with any given websites. As we know bots are a computer program they are not always the smartest so it may get caught in endless loops by dynamic created webpages.

The search engine bot travels around the web to find new webpages to crawl and get them indexed. If your website is down, the search engine bot will not be able to access and crawl it. The bot will come back to your site every now and then to crawl new content. If your site is frequently down, the search engine bot may give up in crawling it which can lead to your site completely disappear from the SERP result and never get reindexed again.

@Zirkon Kalti I like your simple and to the point explanation. Sure an Internet bot or we can say web crawler which thoroughly browses the World Wide Web, basically for the intention of Web indexing.

Bots and botnets are commonly associated with cybercriminals stealing data, identities, credit card numbers and worse. But bots can also serve good purposes. Separating good bots from bad can also make a big difference in how you protect your company’s website and ensure that that your site gets the Internet traffic it deserves.
Most good bots are essentially crawlers sent out from the world’s biggest web sites to index content for their search engines and social media platforms. You WANT those bots to visit you. They bring you more business! Shutting them down as part of strategy to block bad bots is a losing strategy.
Here, in reverse order of how likely they are to visit any web site, are the 10 most important good bots that you should know about now. Make sure your security strategy welcomes these bots (or at least know why you chose to block them)!
