If you simply have too many URLs on your site, Google might crawl a lot but it will never be enough. This can happen because of faceted search navigation for instance, or another system on your site that simply generates too many URLs. To figure out whether this is the case for you, it’s always wise to regularly crawl your own site. You can either do that manually with Screaming Frog’s SEO spider, or with a tool like Ryte.
FamilySearch indexing accesses digital image collections throughout the world. Contractual agreements with record custodians require that these images be protected. A FamilySearch account is the authorization system used to protect them. A FamilySearch account connects you to FamilySearch Family Tree and free records, and allows you to participate with indexing.
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.
First of all, you’ll need quality content. If you’re running an affiliate marketing site, create your money article and at least five supporting articles. If you’re running an e-commerce business, consider adding a Blog to your site to speed up the link indexing process (your blog posts are linkable assets that can generate direct traffic and activity to your site).
Be it first time visitors or even existing customers, if your website is taking ages to load or if your website is down, they will go to your competitor. It becomes extremely important to prevent website downtime at any cost to live upto your brand’s reputation. Also with SEO being given ample importance, the aim becomes to be noticed by Google Bot.
The web is like an ever-growing library with billions of books and no central filing system. We use software known as web crawlers to discover publicly available webpages. Crawlers look at webpages and follow links on those pages, much like you would if you were browsing content on the web. They go from link to link and bring data about those webpages back to Google’s servers.
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.
Understand XML Sitemaps. This is another form of site map that is only visible to search bots, not to users. This is not a replacement for an HTML site map; it's generally a good idea to have both. The XML Sitemap provides meta information to search engines, notably how often pages are updated. This can increase the speed that Google indexes new or updated content on your site.
