    A crawler is a program that visits Web destinations and peruses their pages and other data so as to make sections for a web search tool list. ... Crawlers clearly picked up the name since they creep through a site a page at once, following the connections to different pages on the site until the sum total of what pages have been perused.

    Hi Friends,
    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.

    The index is the database with which search engines like Google store and retrieves data when a user types a query into the search engine. Before it decides which web pages to show from the index and in what order, search engines apply algorithms to help rank those web pages.

    Crawling: Is the mechanism that scans all pages, documents, ListItems, etc. contained in SharePoint. With this scan you can get contents.

    Indexing is the mechanism that integrates the content in the search database (you can imagine a link between content and its URL). And after, when you execute a search query, you will query the indexed content and the search will return the URL of this content.
