Me, probably you, and many other million people use Google products, many of them are free to use but do we know why?. Media consumption you may say, Google needs to keep internet alive. Push the new technologies in order to have Youtube running and getting clicks in AdSense, and that sounds pretty… real.
Conspiranoic Alert. But, do you know how many machines does Google uses as google bot (internet crawler)?. I don’t, but I think we are all Google Bots, we use Chrome and its mobile operating system but basically Chrome, Chrome parses the web page in order to render it, then, it knows what we see. and send some meta data to Google servers, or in the best, just ping the crawlers to let them know about an interesting page.
It takes just a little of our cpu time but would save tons of money to Google (getting new hardware, power, internet, maintenance). So. are we Google Bots?
