Who is Google [Bot]?

Unread postby Puzzlemaster34 » Mon Sep 19, 2011 5:39 pm

Occasionally, when i'm online I see a registered user that I can't view the profile of. The name of this "user" is Google [Bot]. Who is this Google [Bot]? Any ideas? If you see the name it will be bold as usual, but intead of blue it will be gray, and unclickable.
You can see what users are currently online and how many are are online on the Index page.

Google[Bot] is someone previewing the site or a bot that checks up on the site
