It is basically an automated agent of the search engine that crawls around your site and looks for pages for it to be indexed. It acts more of a web surfer of the digital world. Imagine Google Bots crawling zillions of pages every second, every day, they will end up consuming valuable online bandwidth, when they visit your site – resulting in slow website performance.
We offer Search Console to give site owners granular choices about how Google crawls their site: they can provide detailed instructions about how to process pages on their sites, can request a recrawl or can opt out of crawling altogether using a file called “robots.txt”. Google never accepts payment to crawl a site more frequently — we provide the same tools to all websites to ensure the best possible results for our users.
If you have a lot of errors on your site for Google, Google will start crawling slowly too. To speed up the crawl process, fix those errors. Simply 301 redirect those erroring pages to proper URLs on your site. If you don’t know where to find those errors: log into Google Search Console. If you have access to your site’s access logs, you can also look at those, preferably with a tool like Screaming Frog’s Log file analyzer. To prevent your site from being crawled slowly, it’s important that you regularly look at your site’s errors and fix them. We have a more extensive article on fixing 404 errors to help with that.
@Ωmega - Yeah, the subdomain thing with that tool is frustrating in some ways, but I can understand why they did it. In that case, I'm pretty sure there's no way that is both easy and gets the links recrawled quickly. That leaves you with: quick(ish) recrawl = use google.com/addurl and answer all the captchas, or easy = just wait until Google recrawls of it's own volition. Depending on how often the content on all your links are regularly updated, it might be that long if you just wait, though that's obviously not an ideal solution. Sorry I can't be more help. – kevinmicke May 30 '14 at 17:11
The main aim of Googlebot and its crawlers is to not degrade the user experience while visiting any site. To not let these bots affect your website speed, there is functionality where the google crawl rate can be monitored and optimized. This can be done using Google Search Console. Visit the crawl stats and analyze how the bots crawl your site. One can manually set the Google crawl rate and limit the speed as per the need. This will help you ease the issue without overwhelming the server bandwidth.

Even if you submit URL to Google, their AI not only needs to classify and register the data on your website, it also has to evaluate whether your content is good, and relevant for competitive keywords or just an unintelligible spam fest that got pumped with tons of backlinks. This means it’s possible your website was crawled, but the link indexing process is still underway.
