Definition of robot

(See bot, spiders or crawlers): is a program that automatically traverses the Web and requests documents from URLs. A robot usually starts from a historical list of URLs and retrieves referenced documents. As it visits new Internet websites it checks to see if the site is already listed in its database. If the site is already listed it usually updates any changes it finds. Robots are also commonly known as Spiders or Crawlers.
