In John Mueller’s hangout on 09/10/2021, one webmaster asked about their site’s pages and their indexing.
The webmaster is not experiencing a very high crawl demand and wanted to know what else they could do to improve their overall pages.
John explained the differences between crawl budget and crawl demand. This problem is something that falls under both but mainly under the crawl budget category of issues.
If it’s a smaller website, they—more than likely—can crawl everything.
If there’s a bunch of pages that the webmaster created and they’re not being indexed, John’s hunch is maybe they are creating too many pages.
Perhaps they should be focusing on fewer pages and more on the page quality.
As the pages get indexed better and faster, then they can expand on that significantly.
