Up to my understanding, Indexing means visiting your site by Google search engines. Thus improves the page rank for your site. Whenever Google crawls your site thus improves back link and keyword for your site

I think your think is right. I agree from your suggestion. Yes when our page listed by google search engine then it is called indexing by google and when our pages cash by google or our page information check by google then it is called crawling by google.

Crawling : It is the process when bot reads your web page
Indexing : It is the process of adding your webpage in to the search engines database

Crawling is vising a website by search engines and get information that includes Content, Description & keywords and indexing is making database of the information that has been collected by crawler.

Crawl- When a search engine bot visits your site

Index- When a search engine bot visits your site first time and takes a copy of your site to its database.

Crawling is the process of an engine requesting -- and successfully downloading -- a unique URL. Obstacles to crawling include no links to a URL, server downtime, robots exclusion, or using links (such as some JavaScript links) from which bots cannot find a valid URL.

Indexing is the result of successful crawling. I consider a URL to be indexed (by Google) when an info: or cache: query produces a result, signifying the URL's presence in the Google index.

In simple terms, crawling means it retrieves the content from web servers without processing the any results and Indexing means making sense out of the retrieved contents and store it for processing results in a document index.

crawling is when search engines view your website and try to find the depths of it or understanding the hierarchy of your website while Indexing is knowing or categorizing your content. Where or on what keywords should this be listed. The calculation mostly happens here.

Default index and crawl

Indexing is counting the visibility of our page in google search
Crawling is redirecting our page through links

According to me indexing is the process which is shoes that your links is crawled by the search engine and it provides a backlinks.

And crawling is the process by which is we can know that is our given url is active by the search engine or not it is the process which is happen before the indexing.

Default What is the difference between Indexing and Crawling?

indexing the process of storing the pages in the search engine database and delivering when a user requests a query and crawling is the process of scanning or reading the content.

Moving is vising a website by google and get details that includes Articles, Information & key terms and listing is creating data source of the details that has been gathered by spider. It retrieves the details from web hosts without handling the any outcomes and Indexing means creating sense out of the restored material and store it for handling outcomes in a papers index.

When the Search Engines come on your website and read the webpage content, this procedure is called crawling. Whereas whenever search Engines come on your website, which ever page they crawl, they take a copy of that page with them and save it on their server. This procedure done by the search engine is called Indexing.

In a word, indexing including crawling, crawling doesn't equal indexing. indexing > crawling.

I have the same idea with you, crawling is a part of indexing

Default indexing and crawling

When Google bot reads the contents and description etc..on any web site that is called crawling .....and....when Google search engine store that web's data in its own data base then it is called indexing.
