Web crawler visits websites for the purpose of indexing. The dynamic nature of today’s web makes the crawling process harder than before as web contents are continuously updated. In addition, crawling speed is important considering tsunami of big data that need to be indexed among competitive search engines. This research project is aimed to provide survey of current problems in distributed web crawlers. It then investigate the best crawling speed between dynamic globally unique identifiers (GUIDs) and the traditional static identifiers (IDs). Experiment are done by implementing web crawlers to index up to 20000 locally generated URLs using both techniques. The results shown that URLs crawling time can be reduced up to 7% by using GUIDs technique instead of using IDs.
