I run a proboards pokemon forum (I started it during the dark days that PE2K shut down with the hopes of being a part of PC), and when I was on the board yesterday, I noticed that there was a guest online.

I clicked on the link, and it told me that the name of the user was "GoogleBot" Does anyone know what it is, or what it does? I'm just kinda curious, as I've not come across this before.

Edit: "The indexing is performed by a program named Googlebot, which periodically requests new copies of web pages it already knows about. The more often a page updates, the more often Googlebot will visit. The links in these pages are examined to discover new pages to be added to its internal database of the web. This index database and web page cache is several terabytes in size. Google has developed its own file system called Google File System for storing all this data."

-Thanks to http://www.wikipedia.com . So, google is indexing and archiving your site!

I think bot's just add your webpage to google or any search engine, there's also yahoobot and Msnbot.

Update your forum, and Googlebot'll come back.
