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 sitemaps, as they contain all of the links in our blog and Google’s bots can use them to look deeply into a website.

Crawling is tracking and gathering URLs to prepare for indexing. By giving them a webpage as a starting point, they will trace all the valid links on those pages. As they go from link to what is crawling in digital marketinglink, they bring back data about those web pages back to Google’s servers. Therefore, it is crucial that pages on your website are able to be crawled as a page unable to be crawled is unable to be indexed.

Crawling or web crawling refers to an automated process through which search engines filtrate web pages for proper indexing. Web crawlers go through web pages, look for relevant keywords, hyperlinks and content, and bring information back to the web servers for indexing. As crawlers like Google Bots also go through other linked pages on websites, companies build sitemaps for better accessibility and navigation.
