The internet search engines, as well as other internet presences, have programs called "bots" (for "robots") that travel from one internet web site or blog or other internet presence, gathering information. Search engine bots index the pages of websites so that when you do a search the results are found in the search engine database and the page where the search criteria are found is returned as the results of your search. There are thousands and thousands of these bots traveling the internet, collecting information of various types.

Within a couple of days you'll be able to take any unique part of your question, put it in quotes to make the search literal, enter it into Google or Yahoo and your post will be returned... like enter "Kind of an ot question but when viewing a topic". The bots will have returned to this web page and indexed the new material found since last visit.
