Older Version Internet Archive / WebCite



"One of the first automatic indexing tools for the World-Wide Web, being developed in September 1994 by Oliver McBryan at the University of Colorado. The worm created a database of 300000 multimedia objects which can be obtained or searched for keywords via the WWW."

wiseGEEK: »A few other small projects grew up after the Wanderer, which began to approach the modern search engine. These included the World Wide Web Worm, the Repository-Based Software Engineering (RBSE) spider, and JumpStation. All of these three used data collected by web robots to return that information to users. Still, information was just returned unfiltered for the most part, although RBSE did attempt to rank the value of pages.« Source
