Quicker and more comprehensive indexing of your site will occur if your content is fresh, original, useful, easy to navigate, and being linked to from elsewhere on the web. These tools can’t guarantee Google will deem your site indexable. And they shouldn’t be used as an alternative to publishing content which is adding value to the internet ecosystem.

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.
The crawling process begins with a list of web addresses from past crawls and sitemaps provided by website owners. As our crawlers visit these websites, they use links on those sites to discover other pages. The software pays special attention to new sites, changes to existing sites and dead links. Computer programs determine which sites to crawl, how often and how many pages to fetch from each site.
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.
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).
Use Google Search Console to track your website. Google recommends logging in about once a month to see if there are any surprising errors or dips in traffic. This site also provides a variety of indexing-related tools. For example, you can confirm that Google can access your pages ("Fetch as Google"), notify Google of a domain change ("Change of Address"), and issue urgent blocks on content you need to take off your site ("Remove URLs").
