Inrepparttar classic 1986 Film "Short Circuit"repparttar 128063 main character is a cute Robot with an acute thirst for knowledge known only as 'Number 5'.

One of Robot number 5s most engaging traits is that whenever he stumbles across anything interesting he rushes off enthusiastically to collect and indexrepparttar 128064 data with cries of "Input! Input!".

Robots designed to collect and index data actually exist but they are not made of exotic metals, they are software programs and are used by Search Engines to gather information aboutrepparttar 128065 relevance of your web site to a particular search term. These Robots ( sometimes called spiders or crawlers ) are smart but not very selective.

Dynamic content or graphical components cannot be read or indexed, rendering your site effectively
