Googlebot optimization is different from SEO.

Simply put:

SEO's work is to 'optimize' the website for search engines

Googlebot optimization is to 'optimize' the website for Googlebot, or also known as spiders for easy crawling

If you are doing SEO to make your website search-engine friendly; you are doing Googlebot optimization to make your website Google crawl-friendly.

This article here explains further the difference between the two terms and how you can optimize your website for Googlebot: https://blog.kissmetrics.com/googlebot-optimization/

In my point of view Googlebot is the search engine algorithm. It used to crawl page and index the web page into search engine.

Hi! Google Bot is the web crawling bot of Google. In Google Bot Optimization, you optimize your site's chance of getting crawled by Google's bot like what you usually do in search engine optimization.

Google bot is Google's search bot that crawls the web and creates an index. It’s also known as the spider. The bot crawls every page it's allowed access to, and adds it to the index where it can be accessed and returned by user's search queries.
The amount of time that Google bot gives to your site is called “crawl budget”. The greater a page's authority, the more crawl budget it receives.Your site is always being crawled, provided your site is accurately accepting crawlers.
