    spider is a program that a search engine uses to seek out information on the World Wide Web, as well as to index the information that it finds so that actual search results appear when a search query for a keyword is entered.

    crawler is a program or automated script that browses the World Wide Web in a methodical manner in order to provide up to date data to the particular search engine.

    Spider and crawler both are the same, they collect updated data from website and then the data is sent for indexing purposes.
    Is your website Hacked? Try -> www.sitebeak.com
    Is Google Analytics installed Properly? Test -> www.GAtective.com
    Impersonal Google search? Check -> www.impersonal.me

    Both are same purpose. Just crawl (find) new content to be index. If already indexed content consider as supplement text and give low priority.
