Difference Between Crawling and Indexing
Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well there. If we talk about the difference b/w crawling and indexing then Crawling is the process of fetching new data from the websites and webpages by some specific software called crawlers.Every Search Engine has its own crawlers.
Google - Google Bot
Bing - Bing Bot
Yahoo - Slurp
Indexing - When data is fetched by these software, they need to store it some where else. Then these software goes to Search Engine Data Base relatively and deliver the content fetched by them. There are so many software who takes this data and save it to the Search Engine Database. So the process of saving or making index of the fetched data is known as Indexing. These software are known as Indexer.
