Spider “crawls” the web to find new documents (web

Search engines indexes the content (text, code) in these
documents by adding it to their databases and then periodically

terms or keywords typed into search engines and which search
engines are preferred by their targeted audience.

content, HTML and associated coding to both increase its
relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to
the indexing activities of search engines. Promoting a site to
