What is Google crawling all about? Links to indexing and ranking 

Search engine positioning is a comprehensive process of optimizing a website to improve its visibility in search engine results. Positioning is based on three main elements: crawling, page indexing and page ranking. In the article you will read what exactly they are and their impact on your SEO.

Crawling, page indexing and page ranking

Here is a brief characterization of these elements:


  • Google crawling is the process by which web robots (also known as crawlers or bots) browse websites for new or updated content.
  • These robots crawl websites, analyzing links that lead to other sites and reviewing the content of those sites.
  • The main purpose of crawling is to update the search engine index with new information and to understand the structure of the site.

Page indexing

  • Indexing involves collecting and storing information about websites in a search engine’s database.
  • Search engines analyze page content, meta tags, links and other elements to understand what a page is about and what keywords it can be indexed for.
  • Indexing allows search engines to quickly find pages that match users’ queries.

Page ranking

  • Page ranking is the process by which a search engine decides which websites to display on the first pages of search results (
    – Search Engine Results Page).
  • Search engines use ranking algorithms that analyze a number of factors, such as the quality of content, page structure, number and quality of links, and other factors to determine which pages are most relevant to a given query.
  • The goal is to provide the user with the most relevant and valuable search results.

What role do indexing, Google crawling and ranking play in SEO?

Indexing, crawling and ranking are integral parts of the SEO process. Crawling allows web robots to identify and crawl pages, indexing helps understand the content of those pages, and ranking determines which pages will be displayed as search results and in what order. All of these elements are important for a site to be easily found by users and achieve the best possible visibility in search results.


The primary goal of SEO is to understand and optimize these three elements so that a website is easily found by web robots, is understandable and attractive to users, and gets the best possible ranking in search results. Optimization includes many activities, such as optimizing content, internal and external linking, adjusting meta tags, optimizing page load speed and many other factors that affect visibility in search results.
