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

    Crawling: Google come on our website and read it then store our data in hid database
    Indexing: Google save our website pages screenshots in his database then display when any one type relevant keywords in the search engine.

    Crawling and indexing are two distinct things and this is commonly misunderstood in the SEO industry. Crawling means that Googlebot looks at all the content/code on the page and analyzes it. Indexing means that the page is eligible to show up in Google's search results. They aren't mutually inclusive.
