    Crawling is basically when the search engine spider visits a page

    Indexing is when the spider records the page and starts displaying the page in search or counting the link for SERP movement.

    Crawling is a process where search engine spiders visit a web page and they will go through the content.

    Indexing is the process of recording a web page into the search engine's database and if any related query or search happens in the search engine regarding that recorded pages it will refer the visitors to that particular website or page.

    Crawling means to visit the link by SEs and indexing means to put the page contents in DB (after analysis) and make them available in search result when request is made.

    Crawling means the visit of Google to track your web page. This process is done by Spider of Google crawler. Indexing means when crawling has been done putting the results on Google’s index.

    , 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. Obstacles to indexing can include duplication (the engine might decide to index only one version of content for which it finds many nearly identical URLs), unreliable server delivery (the engine may decide to not index a page that it can access during only one-third of its attempts), and so on.

    Crawling is the process or reading through your webpage source by search engine spiders. They provide a cache certificate after a successful crawl. Indexing is updating the cached webpages in search engine database. Indexed webpages are now ready for search engine rankings.
