Bingbot is the name of the web crawler developed and utilized by Microsoft. Its primary function is systematically browsing the World Wide Web, collecting and analyzing information from various websites.

This data is then used to construct a searchable index of the web, which forms the basis for the search engine results provided by Bing, Microsoft’s search engine. Bingbot operates by following links on the internet, constantly updating its index with new information, changes to existing web pages, and noting dead links. This continuous process allows Bing to provide up-to-date and relevant search results.
