crawling means bot carwled your site.

It depends it might or might give you "indexing" in its search results.

Caching is date and time it does the crawling.

Crawling- Google sends its spiders to your website..
Indexing- Google visited your website and has added you to its database..
Caching- Google toook a snapshot of your website when it last visited and stored the data in case your website went down or if there are some any other issues.

Crawling is the process of an engine requesting — and successfully downloading — a unique 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.
It means, if we uploaded a new website, then first of all search engine crawler will read the site and after that, it will store all its contents in its Index Data Base in a different format, it will not place content as it was published. As a result, the site will appear in search results for optimized keywords.

the process in the context of search engines designed to find web pages on the Internet is Web indexing.Crawling- Google sends its spiders to your website.Indexing- Google visited your website and has added you to its database.Caching is when the bot saves the content of your website.

Crawling is vising a website by search engines and get information that includes Content, Description & keywords and indexing is making database of the information that has been collected by crawler.

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.

Caching is a technology used with the memory subsystem of your computer. The main purpose of a cache is to accelerate your computer while keeping the price of the computer low. Caching allows you to do your computer tasks more rapidly.

When Google visits your website for tracking purposes. This process is done by Google’s Spider crawler and it is known as crawling.
After crawling has been done, the results get put onto Google’s index which is known as indexing.
Caching is the process in which google store the web page information in google storage.
