    Web crawling is to check the availability of the web pages and bring data about the web pages to Google's servers. After crawling, Google index the pages which includes information about words and locations.

    Crawling" as it relates to Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the term for the actions that a search engine's automatic navigator performs when searching for relevant websites on the internet.

    Pages of your website are indexed by crawler to save in its database. This saving process is called indexing. There may be hundreds of pages in your website. But every page will be indexed, it can’t be assured.

    First thing dont submit all the pages to google indexer. Submiting site home page is more than enough. Google crawlers are stong enough to find out all files on your website and index it automatically. So stop it if you are doing it now.

    Also you can also update your page contents any time, no need to think about search engines for that. Any ways search engine like the websites which are updated regularly.

    Search engines have two main functions - crawling and construction of an index, and provide answers by calculating the relevance and presentation of results.
    Crawling
    It is the process by which "web crawlers / Googlebot / spider" are used to find new web pages and updates available to the public and report to Google.
    Indexing
    It's like holding billions of pounds without a central filing system. Or you can say that during the analysis process gathers Google Web pages and creates an index based on the information about the words and their locations.

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

    What’s the difference between crawling and indexing, in terms of time? Here’s a recent example. I recently watched a newly introduced URL to see when it would be indexed. I monitored the text cache query of the URL every four hours starting when the URL went live on July 2. (This URL was one of a number of URLs linked to on a new site map.)
    On July 17, the text cache showed results and finally stopped saying “Your search – cache:[URL] – did not match any documents.” But what was interesting is that the cached file showed the results of the URL “as retrieved on 8 Jul 08.” So make special note that the URL was crawled and cached over a week before it appeared in the index.
    A better, more comprehensive test would be to watch server logs and see how many times the file was requested, and with what frequency, between the original request date and date at which the cache query showed results. Additional testing would try to detect ways to shorten that time by increasing the number (and prominence) of incoming links and so on.

    Crawling is the process of an engine requesting — and successfully downloading — a unique URL. Obstacles to crawling include no links to a URL, server downtime, robots exclusion, or using links (such as some JavaScript links) from which bots cannot find a valid URL.
    Indexing is the result of successful crawling. I consider a URL to be indexed (by Google) when an info: or cache: query produces a result, signifying the URL’s presence in the Google index. Obstacles to indexing can include duplication (the engine might decide to index only one version of content for which it finds many nearly identical URLs), unreliable server delivery (the engine may decide to not index a page that it can access during only one-third of its attempts), and so on.

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