    Yahoo! Slurp is Yahoo's web-indexing robot.Google and other search engines use them.

    Their job is to find new web pages and put them in search results.

    I don`t know why Yahoo`s spider is so prevalent.Everybody uses google.

    Spammers also use Spiderbots to harvest email addresses from webpages

    If a Yahoo spider mates with a Google spider,they produce Goohoo spiders.(That bits not true)
