How I followed Google Bot for three months and what came out of it

Every now and then, on internet forums and in more or less content-related groups on Facebook, there break out discussions on how Google Bot – that we shall tenderly call BG here - works: what it can see, what it cannot see and how it influences SEO.

  • we played hide-and-seek in hidden content (which, as his parents claim, he does not tolerate and avoids it)
  • we trained survival: I was preparing traps and was waiting for him to fall into them
  • I was putting up obstacles with various difficulty levels to check how my little friend would deal with them
