    Difference between indexed and crawling

    Crawling is also known as spider or Google bot. It visits on the web pages and check that everything is ok in the site if it finds duplicity it removes that page or site. The search engine crawler visits each web page and identifies all the hyperlinks on the page, adding them to the list of places to crawl.
    Indexing process is a simple file management technique that organizes data into special file folders, similar to a file label in a file cabinet. Internet search engines use special indexing techniques that store Meta data about web sites and content.

    What is Google Crawling?

    Crawling basically means following a path. In the SEO world, crawling means following your links and “crawling” around your website. When bots come to your website (any page), they follow other linked pages also on your website.

    This is one reason why we create site maps, as they contain all of the links in our blog and Google’s bots can use them to look deeply into a website.

    The way we stop crawling certain parts of our site is by using the Robots.txt file.

    What is Google Indexing?

    In layman’s terms, indexing is the process of adding webpages into Google search. Depending upon which meta tag you used (index or NO-index), Google will crawl and index your pages. A no-index tag means that that page will not be added into the web search’s index.

    By default, every WordPress post and page is indexed. A good idea for ranking higher in search engines is to let only vital parts of your blog/website be indexed.

    Do not index unnecessary archives like tags, categories, and all other useless pages.

    Good luck to you!

    Indexing- Indexing takes place after a crawled URIs are processed. Note that there may be several URIs that are crawled but there could be fewer of them whose content will be processed through indexing.

    Crawling- Crawling takes place when there is a successful fetching of unique URIs which can be traced from valid links from other web pages.

    Crawling is the process or reading through your webpage source by search engine spiders. They provide a cache certificate after a successful crawl. Indexing is updating the cached webpages in search engine database. Indexed webpages are now ready for search engine rankings.
