Oh thanks Ruth :biggrin:Nailsinlondon1 said:Google spider is someone, that is viewing the board and got here via the google search engine................
Not a creepy crawly geek!!!!!!!!!!
Phew!The Nail Geek said:Actually, a spider is a search engine indexer.
A spider 'crawls the web' downloading and combing through web content to index it for search engines.
Googlebot is the spider for Google
Inktomi is the spider for Microsoft
There are tons of others... in a nut shell... it means the site is currently getting indexed (which is a very good thing)
I actually PM'd Sam and asked him about this a while ago, another reason for the private message facility you don't feel so daft if your just asking one person :o :oGlorsclaws said:Phew!
glad its not just me thats been driven nuts by this one.
I actually posted this question myself and then deleted it because I felt daft asking
Thanx for letting us know Sam ... 'Google Spiders' yuk!, creepy name!
