Abstract—With the advent of internet technology, data has exploded to a considerable amount. Large volumes of data can be explored easily through search engines, to extract valuable information. Web crawlers are an indispensible part of search engine, which are program (proceeds with the search term) that can traverse through the hyperlinks, indexes them, parses the files and adds new links in to its queue and the mentioned process is done several times until search term vanishes from those pages. The web crawler looks for updating the links which has already been indexed. This paper briefly reviews the concepts of web crawler, its architecture and its different types. It lists the software used by various mobile systems and also explores the ways of usage of web crawler in mobile systems and reveals the possibility for further research.

Index Terms—Web crawlers, mobile systems, mobile web crawler.
