Before knowing the Use of Cookies for Advertisement, let us discuss how Google works with Bots and Crawlers.

Since Google is a website of its own. So if we want to search for something we will search with the help of google. The Internet contains many many numbers of websites, but google doesn’t contain all of the websites. If we make a website of our own, then it takes 1-5 days to appear on Google. Since it Visits all websites all over the world.

So, if we search for something on google, It would only show you those websites which are indexed. Therefore for Google, it might not be possible to show all the websites.

So, Google generally makes programs and different types of algorithms. Basically, Google uses crawlers, which are a type of robot. So if we show a website to google, then the spider crawls the website. In response,

If there are 10 links in the websites, that point to other websites, the crawlers then enter those 10 websites. Subsequently, and spider finds how many links are pointing to other websites and the spider continues this process regularly. In this process spider automatically scan all the websites. Thus spider stores all websites, databases, titles, descriptions, URLs. These are the back-end of Google.

Let’s take an example, think we searched “The Techia”. Now Google tends to find different servers with those particular keywords that match and then Google searches the best matching results. Google also tends to find the title, description of the particular search results.

Thus, Google shows you the top 10 results. If any link of the website is bouncing back in many numbers then Google categorizes these links as trash.

It automatically removes from search results whereas if people visit those links more and more then Google promotes those links. But Google can’t make money for the promotions. Here Google works are transparent. The most popular Ad Network generates most of the annual revenue.
