    Indexing means search engines getting or collecting web pages and store in its database. Through this database search engine can respond to the search queries entered by users. Search engines not only display the particular information related keyword used in the search query but also displays the other information.

    Indexing impacts ranking & you can understand indexing process in details at Google itself.

    Indexing is the most important activity in ranking of any website in the search engine; a website will not be ranked until the site is indexed by the bots and crawlers. So, indexing means search engines collecting information about the web pages and storing them in its database. With the help of this database, search engines then respond to the search queries entered by users in the query section and show the relative results.

    Indexing is very important in SEO because it has an important role to increase the ranking of the webpages. If the website is not indexed then it is not crawled by crawlers. Indexing means the Search Engine collects and stores the webpages in the database.

    Hi Friends,
    At first, let's define the term 'indexing'. In the SEO world it's a process of adding web pages into Google search engine database. To understand fully how it works we need to define another term ‘crawling’. Google bot visits your site with certain frequency and collects info about the quality of your website. This process is also known as ‘crawling’. After search bot scans a website and enters data to the index, it ranks your site in the organic search results.

    Indexing is updating the cached webpages in search engine database. Indexed webpages are now ready for search engine rankings.

    Search engines have three primary functions: crawling, indexing and ranking. These three processes are used in delivering search results. It works as follows

    Crawling
    Crawling is the process by which search engines discover updated content on the web, such as new sites or pages, changes to existing sites, and dead links. To do this, a search engine uses a program that can be referred to as a ‘crawler’, ‘bot’ or ‘spider’ (each search engine has its own type) which follows an algorithmic process to determine which sites to crawl and how often. As a search engine’s crawler moves through your site it will also detect and record any links it finds on these pages and add them to a list that will be crawled later. This is how new content is discovered.

    Indexing

    Once a search engine processes each of the pages it crawls, it compiles a massive index of all the words it sees and their location on each page. It is essentially a database of billions of web pages. This extracted content is then stored, with the information then organised and interpreted by the search engine’s algorithm to measure its importance compared to similar pages. Servers based all around the world allow users to access these pages almost instantaneously. Storing and sorting this information requires significant space and both Microsoft and Google have over a million servers each.

    Ranking
    As SEO’s this is the area we are most concerned with and the part that allows us to show clients tangible progress. Once a keyword is entered into a search box, search engines will check for pages within their index that are the closest match; a score will be assigned to these pages based on an algorithm consisting of hundreds of different ranking signals. These pages (or images & videos) will then be displayed to the user in order of score.
    So in order for your site to rank well in search results pages, it’s important to make sure search engines can crawl and index your site correctly – otherwise, they will be unable to appropriately rank your website’s content in search results.

    This is very in detail explanation. Recently I have applied this strategy on a Salesforce Certification Training based based which is working fine.
