    Crawling and indexing are two distinct things and this is commonly misunderstood in the SEO industry. Crawling means that Googlebot looks at all the content/code on the page and analyzes it. Indexing means that the page is eligible to show up in Google's search results.

    Crawling is a process which is done by search engine bots to discover publicly available web pages. If anyone creates a new page on a website and link to it from an existing page and updates a site map file, this will be a signal to search engine bots that they should come and visit the web page to find new content.

    While Indexing means when search engines bots crawl the web pages and save a copy of all information on index servers and search engines show the relevant results on search engines when a user performs a search query.
