Our Web Crawler
The crawler is the piece of software that walks the web, following links, finding new pages to include in the search engine index.
The CAN Search Engine spider is simple and well behaved, in it's current configuration it will pause for 2-30 seconds between fetching pages depending on how big and complex the pages are. It does not start a new fetch from your site before the first one is parsed and added to the index.
If you notice any problems with our spider on your website please contact us at the following email address.
