It should do neither. Instead, it will look for a default page in the data/
directory (e.g. index.html, index.htm). It will index that page, collect
all of the links listed on that page, and proceed to do the same with each
of those links. There are a number of ways in which the links it follows
will be limited, but it will only consider pages that can be reached by
traversing a series of links that originate in the default page.
