A Current List Of Google’s Robots

What Bots Does Google Have These Days? from Ben Pfeiffer on my Search Engine Roundtable blog lists the names of the current spiders/robots/bots Google has roaming the web.

The list includes the classic web spider Googlebot, the AdSense spider MediaBot, Google’s image spider ImageBot, the AdWords spider AdsBot, Google’s RSS feed spider Feedfetcher-Google, and Googlebot-Mobile for the spiders that go mobile.

It’s a great short post by Ben while I was away.
