Google has updated its Verifying Googlebot and other Google crawlers help document to add a new section describing the three categories or types of crawlers they have. They have their Googlebot crawler, special-case crawlers and user-triggered crawlers.

I believe this was done after we, including me, were obsessed a bit over the new GoogleOther crawler. Then Gary Illyes from Google added, “Please don’t overthink it, it’s really that boring.” But I do what I do and I overthink’ed it. So Gary did what he does and had a help document to explain this in more detail.

The help document says, “Google’s crawlers fall into three categories.”

(1) Googlebot: The main crawler for Google’s search products, it alays respects robots.txt rules. Its reverse DNS mask is “crawl-***-***-***-*** or geo-crawl-***-***-***-***” and the list of IP ranges are in this googlebot.json file.

(2) Special-case crawlers: Crawlers that perform specific functions (such as AdsBot), which may or may not respect robots.txt rules. Its reverse DNS mask is “rate-limited-proxy-***-***-***-***” and the list of IP ranges are in this special-crawlers.json file.

(3) User-triggered fetchers: Tools and product functions where the end user triggers a fetch. For example, Google Site Verifier acts on the request of a user. Because the fetch was requested by a user, these fetchers ignore robots.txt rules. Its reverse DNS mask is “***-***-***-***” and the list of IP ranges are in this user-triggered-fetchers.json file.

Here is a screenshot of the new section in this help document:

Also, with this, Google restructured the order of the Googlebots on the Google crawlers page:
