hi everyone,

been messing about creating my own site, ive noticed something called a 'Googlebot' roaming round my site, is this a good or a bad thing?

sorry if this sounds incredibly thick, but does it have anything to do with Google? lol

cheers

Good and bad - good for you as it is googles software indexing your site, which will add it to their search engine and people will find your site. However it can be bad on sites like this, on one hand it gets us to the top of the rankings in google, but on the other hand can cause some serious performance problems!
