A web spider is a piece of software that scans your web pages and collects data for indexing. A program that automatically follows all of the links on each web page is called crawler.

Many sites, in particular search engines, use spidering as a means of providing up-to-date data. Web crawlers are mainly used to create a copy of all the visited pages for later processing by a search engine that will index the downloaded pages to provide fast searches.

Crawling- Google sends its spiders to your website..
Spider- Google visited your website and has added you to its database..

I used to confuse the two. But now I know the difference.

Spiders browse and download webpages. Crawlers index your webpages to the appropriate SERP categories.

A spider web is software that analyzes your web pages and collects data for indexing. They have no intelligence. They just collect information for search engines such as Google.The google guys set algorithms that affect search engine ranking.
They do not reveal these algorithms to anyone. Therefore it takes experienced SEO professionals to figure.
