Google Spider

So I was looking at "who's Online", and thrown in with the guests was something called Google Spider. What's this? Just someone who's linked to the site from a search engine or something? If so, why ahven't I seen it more?

Google Spider is the bot from Google that is indexing the site for searching purposes, strangely enough that was never mentioned in the other thread.

To my understanding, a spider is a tiny search engine program that browses the web and bookmarks stuff for future/faster reference. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
