Wait! You are saying indexing and crawling are not the same?

Yes. You've read well. In simple plain words:

  • Crawling is a process of Googlebot visiting your page/code and analysing it.
  • Indexing is a process where Google decides that page you've submitted is eligible for showing up in search results.

Do not worry if this is new to you. This is truth. This is very common misconception. I'm glad it is solved now.
